Gestation Period for Mice

Well, despite my efforts to keep my male mouse and female mouse seperated, they somehow climbed over their seperation wall. It's been about a week, and the female is fat, lumpy, and lazy. I'm thinking she is pregnant. My question is, how long will it be until the babies are born? I've only had baby mice once before, and that was years ago. Thanks.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4)

Thanks. I guess I'll just give them away to my friends, like I did last time. I'm going to keep the originals, though. Last time, I kep two babies and got rid of the adults. My mice are just normal mice. I think the pet store calls them Fancy Mice.
