Murphy is pregnant

Well leave it to prego me to pick out a pregnant piggy. I have been on strict bedrest with my pregnancy so I haven't been able to spend much time with her but hubby and the kids have been. They have been weighing the piggies since we got them (we have the 3) and they noticed just how big Murphy had gotten. Then last week we felt the babies (we think there are 2) kicking away. We have had the piggies for a few weeks now.. I registered here when we got them and all 3 of my pigs are female so she must have been prego when we brought her home. Poor Murphy!!! Now I can't wait to see the babies.

I have done a lot of research on baby piggies and the birthing process. Is there anyone that has any information that isn't on any of the websites that would be helpful?

Thanks!
Jenn

Still waiting on the babies but I assume it should be sometime soon. We saw them moving in there about 2 weeks ago and she looks really uncomfortable but I guess we really have no way of knowing when they will come. It is driving my hubby and kids nuts waiting on the babies to come. So much so that the first baby born will be named Nutter

I'll post pics as soon as she pops them out lol. We are taking bets on when she will have them though.

4 cats: Radar, Oscar, Mackintosh, Qwilleran
1 dog: Daphne
3 rabbits: Barbarella Bunny. DC's Lucy, Ricky
1 daddy-long leg spider: Spidey
8 assorted tarantulas
1 madagascar hissing cockroach: Lady
3 chickens
1 ball python: Eve
1 corn snake: Charisma
1 California kingsnake: Honey
1 tortoise: Charlie

Yeah it is really amazing how big they are and how well developed they are when they are born. The babies are doing well. We took some clean pics of them all fluffy and dry today lol. I will post them as soon as hubby puts them on the computer. They have been feeding really well so far and Murphy is doing a reat job taking care of them which we were a little worried about because she is so young to begin with.

The babies weighed in at Blackie: 124 grams and Brownie: 113 grams last night when we weighed them. Their names will change lol but my son who won the contest of when the babies would be born gets to pick which he wants and he is with my parents until later today sometime. Hubby wants to name the brown one Tater lol so we will see.
