When my mice were prego i could tell because they got HUGE. I'm talking the size of my palm huge, like muler said they do become pear shaped. If she is be careful not to handel her too much as you could hurt the babies. Also you can sex your mice youself, Males will have a lager space from thier rectum and penus than females.

If they are both boys you will see the male testicles easily at this point in their lives. If you leave a food dish in there that they can sorta perch on you can see them better.

You will NEED to seperate them! Within 12-24 hours of giving birth,the female will get pregnant again.
Females go into heat every 4-5 days.
