Question pregnant degu

I just purchased my first degu, Cinnamon. I fell in love with her as soon as I held her. Only thing is she was kept in a cage at the pet store with a male and another female. The person who helped at the petstore said it was very likely that she was pregnant and so was the other female. She appears to be very pregnant, pudgy and you can really see the babies move. I've noticed today that the pups are moving around like crazy, you can literally see them pop up underneath the skin and watch the skin move as they move. I am wondering just how much longer does she have, and how exactly do I prep the cage for the pups? Thanks!

Well degus have a 90 day gestation period, by the sound of it I would think that she is very far gone..
The best thing to do is not to make too many changes in the cage, make sure there is somewhere for her to give birth, she will not like to be disturbed once she is near to giving birth etc..
I will have a look on here too for any pregnancy threads I can find and will post them..

Thanks for posting the threads and trying to help. Cinnamon has built herself quite a nest. She also looks like she's about to pop. Every day she's gotten bigger. I'll let you know what happens with the pregnancy. Thanks again!

She's become very still lately. For the most part she never leaves her nest, but no pups yet. Yesterday I did notice she was squeaking. I haven't been home much today, so I don't know if this has been occuring still. The plan is since degus are very social, I'm leaving the females with her, and the males already have a home with my boyfriend. He fell in love with my Cinnamon and we've only had her a few days. As of now she looks like a baseball with legs and ears. hehe
