Question does anyone know how to tell if a piggie is pregnant

ok. well my best friend's piggie (she just found out) might be pregnant and that her other piggie is a boy. amy (my best friend) just got har piggies about 3 weeks ago and sophie's (might be pregnant piggie) belly is poped out and is tight. Can anyone guess for me if she might be pregnant (i know it will be hard because its just a picture)

Keep in mind significant bulging on the lower sides might indicate ovarian cysts - a serious problem.

I have NO idea if human pregnancy tests strips would work on GPs, but if anyone knows tell us!

I had two Abby babies born here Sept. 6th from a rescued GP I knew was pregnant, and they are cute to the max!

Why on earth is she being kept with a male? Of course it is highly likely that she is pregnant if she is in with him and has started bulging......
How old is she? GP's when older can have serious problems because their hip bones fuse together. Best to get her to a vet who will tell you whether pregnant or not. GP's need same sex company, so if she has these successfully, your friend needs to get another cage and put same sex babies with their parents.
