S11 and S12, hoping for S13 to arrive

I walked into the chin room this afternoon and saw what I thought was a hay cube in Sage's cage, but couldn't remember putting any hay cubes in there recently. Upon closer examination, I found a very premature standard kit. Not sure if it was male or female as it was already dead and I have this thing about touching dead animals once they've gone stiff.
I palpated Sage and didn't feel anything else in there. I checked on her a little later, and still nothing, but glanced over at Jetta's cage and noticed a little tail sticking out from under her. She delivered a 52 gm bouncing baby dark ebony girl! I palpated her and I don't think she's done yet because she still has a lump in there that I swear, kicked me! She's also still restless and moving around a lot. Can't seem to get comfortable, so I'm assuming she's not done yet. Either that, or it's a very large placenta! But a placenta that kicked me? Hmmm...I'll give her a little while and check back again. Here's hoping for twins!

I'm sorry to hear about Sage's baby.

But, congrats to you and Jetta. Did Jetta end up having another baby?

Nope, no second kit. I'm sure what I was feeling were contractions and the placenta. She's all soft and squishy now and both mom and baby are doing great. The kit has gained 3 gms within the first 24 hours, so all is well. Pics will be coming as soon as I get my camera back from a friend who borrowed it
