How to tell when a degu will have her babies?

I'm almost positive Sage is pregnant. She just keeps getting bigger and bigger, plus today I was able to see her teets, which our degu book says is a clear sign of a pregnant degu. I was NOT able to see them when I checked on her 2-3 days ago (I'm not handling her as much these days, because being picked up out of the cage makes her nervous, and I don't want to upset her while pregnant. For the most part, we're leaving her alone, except for when we want to check on how she's doing).

I've heard that degus don't start to show until about 3 weeks before the give birth. Does anyone know roughly how long after the teets become visible they give birth?
