I didn't know my new degu, Shatzi, was pregnant. I must have bought her when she was 2 months pregnant, b/c she had the babies about a month after I got her at the pet store. I had read all about degus, but I never bothered to read anything about breeding, considering I had two females - so I missed EVERY warning sign. She walked with a waddle, her tummy was pretty plump, she made a nest with everything I gave her, she never really liked to be handled, and she would become irritable at times.
Then on some random night, i went in my room, and she was delivering her babies. You can imagine my shock. They are the most adorable babies ever though.
Good luck with whatever happens!
