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?

Momma to three pups:

Ein, Pembroke Welsh Corgi (black headed tri) born 7/12/2004
Tucker, golden colored lab mix, rescue - est dob fall 2004
Colleen rough collie (sable and white), rescue - est dob: 2003-2004

I wish I could help.. But one of my degus gave birth and I didnt even know she was pregnant, in fact I still dont know which one is the mummy of the babies.. You are doing the right things though..
Good luck and keep us informed..
