Question Should I show cause for concern?

My degu started building nest several days ago she is prego and now it seems that she looks smaller but no babies!I mean don't get me wrong she still looks prego just smaller or shifted more towards rear. They messed up the nest yesterday so I figured I would go ahead and clean good because it might be my last chance. But still nothing!!!

I'd wait a while longer if the weight has shifted more towards the rear it could mean she's nearing the time to give birth. Is she ok in herself? Eating, drinking etc....? It will happen when she's ready so don't give up hope yet

Degus almost always have their babies in the morning and will usually let out happy squeaks to tell the world I know the wait is hard, but well worth it

Good luck. I wish I had degu babies right now, but I must wait until the boys I get are old enough to breed. :3 I want to breed to improve health and temperment. Plus one of the boys I'm getting is gray in color. I hope to pass this down onto their young.
