My guinea pig is soooooo pregnant, I know she has to be miserable I've been watching her for the past week and I've noticed the poor thing just to move has to lean and use either or back feet her belly is so big she literally can't use both 😔 I give her a lot of attention now that I haven't picked her up for our late night movie dates in weeks. She loves to be petted on and pampered so last night I sat down with her in my floor and she got in my lap and laid down when I was stroking her sides I could hear and feel this little grinding type sound? If I could describe it, the sound would be like taking two rocks and rubbing them together and the feeling was odly like Someone was on the inside taking their nail and gently scratching really fast. I leaned in a little closer and underneath my little Mama's talking I could hear little grunting noises! Someone please tell me I'm not crazy😅 her pelvic bones are separated about 1 1/2 finger width apart I usually only check her in her cage once a week. Should I be expecting babies anytime soon?

Oh yeah I know that at first I thought I was crazy too when my two guinea pigs were pregnant but it’s okay it means that she’s gonna pop soon so you should wait I actually don’t remember how long i heard it before she popped. She’s probably gonna give birth at night it happened to me I didn’t even realized it until I saw her running so skinny in the morning. I hope it will be really easy for her waiting for an update

What you're hearing is the pups grinding their teeth.

And yes, she's about to have the pups, but they can't read the delivery schedule, so there's no way to predict exactly when it will be. See https://www.guineapigcages.com/foru...inea-pig-is-pregnant-And-how-far-along-is-she for more information.

If there's a male in the cage with her, remove him NOW. She can get pregnant again within minutes of giving birth, and back-to-back pregnancies are VERY hard on the sow and the second litter of pups.

I do hope you're not deliberately breeding her.
