First sign of pregnancy? How early is it?
Our degu, Deghoo, got a male friend and at first all he could think of
was mating with her. He kept trying and they had a bit of a fight
every once in a while. But we put them in a cage, and went out for
quite a while--maybe 2 hours--and when we came back, they were sleeping
together. Since then, he hasn't tried to mate with her, protects her,
gets angry at my boys when he smells them
(he makes a grunting noise at them that sounds really strange)
and they get along perfectly.
Sleep together, groom, give each other kisses. He always looks after her.
And lately she's just kept gaining weight--only little bits. It's been about
2 weeks, and yet, we've noticed she's a lot heavier and sturdier.
She also seems to be rounded. Can it show that early, just in small bits?
She used to be pretty thin, but she's getting round lower in her belly,
like my hamsters got early in their pregnancies.
What are your opinions?
