signs of a pregnant mouse?

I think one of my mice might be pregnant
shes got a lil podgy and isnt as active as the other two.
when i chose the mice (thinking they were all females) i put them in the same cage together 3 weeks before i took them home so they've been together for 6 weeks now and weve had no babies yet.
Could Stripe be pregnant?
please help.

You thought they were all females but have found a male? Or you think it got pregnant before you got her?

Well, if you think she was pregnant before you got her, then no.. she couldn't be pregnant... 6 weeks is too long and she woud have given birth.. but if you found a male between them less than a month ago, then it's a posibility...

The females generally have shorter stripes than the males in their anogenital region. Pick up each of your pet mice by their tailes (don't worry this doesn't hurt them, vets do this) and compare with the differences in length of those stripes. If you do have a male, you'll recognize the difference instantly.
