Some of you might remember how I caught Lizzie and Bruce in the act a while back. Well I'm pretty sure Lizzie is pregnant. It's been about two months. What should I be looking out for? How cani tell for sure and how much longer till the babies come? This was not a planned pregnancy so I'm not sure about it all haha!

Watch her breathing,gravid(pregnant) females often show laboured breathing,weight gain,eating more,easterns often bulk up down towards hips,thiugh some hide gravidity quite well with out shiwing the tell tale signs
If mating was roughly 2 months ago ,at least 40 days till babies,maybe more,gestation length varies according to temps available,being in qld though u should have good temps available so i reckon early jan,maybe even ariund xmas you might get babies,yiu dont have to do anything generally,just watch and wait,lol

Sounds good. I'm a bit worried about her with the babies pressing against her lungs as they get bigger. She finds it hard enough to breathe normally with her past bad respiratory infections. She since the end of winter/early spring she has had constant watery eyes. I think I'll get her an appointment with her vet just to check things out.
