I had her with a buck for about a week. I'm assuming that she is pregnant, but I want to get her back with a male A.S.A.P if not, so any input you have would be great. :)

If she was in with a buck for a week and she is over 6 weeks old (which she should be anyway if you bred her on purpose) then it is most likely that she is indeed pregnant. She would start to show obviously after 2 weeks from conception and there will soon be no doubt. If there are no signs of pregnancy you still need to wait at least 3 weeks after the time you removed the buck, just in case she's pregnant but not showing (which can happen).

She's 11 weeks old and this will be her first litter, so I'm not sure what her 'normal', so to speak, is. It's been about 2 and a half weeks so far, but Ill update in a couple days. Thanks!

She looks preggers to me. Sometimes it is hard to tell. I could feel little wriggley things inside their tummies several nights before.

It can be really difficult to tell, sometimes I've had does who have given birth to smaller litters and they havent even looked a bit chubbier than normal when pregnant. I'd say the first picture looks like a rounded belly and the nipples are showinng a bit so those are sort of signs she is expecting, maybe another week or so.

Yeah I checked her again, and she's definitely trimming the hair around her nipples so I expect a litter within the next week :)

Congrats on your forth coming litter I would say maybe sooner than a week if she has nipples showing ready for the babies.

When my PEW was preggers with 12, some photos showed her like she'd swallowed a golf ball, and some she looked completely normal :lol:.
