Members with pregnant mice or new mommy mice...

Do you have any pics of them? I'm going crazy here not knowing if I have two pregnant girls! I've searched everywhere on the net for pics and haven't had any luck. Can anyone help? I just want to be prepared.

Here are two pictures of Isabella taken the night before she had her babies. Hope this helps.

Oh, and as a comparison, here is a picture of Eva taken the same time. Bear in mind, when we got them, Isabella was the smaller of the two - so she was smaller than Eva in this pic.

I posted some ealier today. They weren't the best pics but I couldn't get any better ones tonight. I just didn't want to disturb them. They have really large stomachs but they have thicker necks than your mouse did. Maybe they are just large from previous litters and making milk. Not knowing is killing me though because I've never had a pet that could be pregnant. I've always gotten same sex or spayed/neutered animals. I'm not a person who likes surprises, but I rescued these girls from becoming snakefood so I'll deal with whatever happens!

mice when they get late in their pregnancy, basically look like they've swallowed a golf ball... heheh. early on they don't show it, but towards the end, they're HUUUGE!!

2 rats, 2 mini rex bunnies, 2 cats, 1 prairie dog, 4 species breeding millipedes, 23 various different species tarantulas, 2 Heteropoda davidbowie huntsman spiders, 3 Liocheles australasiae scorps, 20+ Hogna helluo wolf spiderlings, etc.

spiders are addictive... and super easy to care for!

Wow, mine are definitely not that large. Maybe they do just have milk in them from feeding all those babies at the store...

We'll see what happens. If it is just milk, should it go away soon?

If it's milk, they stop producing milk when there are no more stimili (like babies sucking milk). I haven't really seen any of the nursing rodents I've had (hamsters and gerbils) "get fatter" cause they have milk in them. Their nipples show a bit more as in you couln't see them when they weren't pregnant/nursing and no that she's pregnant/nursing you can see them, but that's it. I don't know about mice, but I doubt they'll get fatter cause of they have milk in them. Mice do have kind of a round belly even if they are not pregnant. I know I saw a nice pic of a pregnant and not pregnant mouse side by side... but I can't find it... well... either way, you'll know in 21 days or less... hehe

I don't have pics of mine, but once they start to look like a golf ball, its real easy to see.
