Well before the baby died from the last litter, I put my female coco in with Winston so I would have another litter before the end of the summer. She was due yesterday (counted 26 days from putting her in with Winston) but . . . nothing. Shes got slightly rounder these past couple of days and she has more obvious nipples but she just looks like shes fat. I tried 'feeling for babies' like on fancymice.info but she wont keep still long enough. Any suggestions? Im slightly impatient as if she is not pregnant I dont want her to spend all this time alone. Does pregnancy make them pee more like it does people? :? She has only ever peed on me once and yesterday she peed on me twice and started getting cosy in my sleeve lol. At one point we were hoping she didnt give birth in there. Any suggestions?

forgot to mention she does have a pot belly which does extend to the floor, but although she is slightly rounder, she certainly does not look like shes swallowed a golf ball lol, small litter perhaps?

Sometimes mating won't happen for a few days, for reasons like the man-mouse is inexperienced and doesn't quite know what to do, or maybe the mating just doesn't 'take'. The longest I've had is 31 days since pairing before the doe kindled, so don't worry :)

You don't need to feel for babies (inexperienced prodding could damage them or her) or worry that she's going to give birth in your sleeve, she won't. Just give her some peace and relax, they'll arrive within the week I would have thought :)
