Talking Update on our first pregnancy!!!

Ok I know Im not weighing Destiny on a regular basis..

I just can't help myself but weigh her everytime I see her!!!!! Im so excited! I caught her flopping on her side trying to get cumfy in her cage the other day.. Ok- I know it's still early for her to already be uncomforable but it's fun to think about lilttle babies in her tummy!!!

Anyway- here's her weights!
10-27 they mated (Im thinking)

11-1
638g (she had been fluctuating there lately.. )

11-5
648g

11-11
671g

11-12
682g

11-14
691g!!

She's movin on up...

She is gaining pretty fast. I never noticed any of mine gaining that fast at the beginning of pregnancy, its usually more toward the middle and end.

Sassy!!!!! That's what I was wondering!!! It's nice to hear that from someone that is been in breeding for a while!! I told Kevin and he agreed, too. Hopefully she is closer than we think!! I have everything ready and waiting for those babies! OOOOOOOOOOO I can't wait....

The only thing is though, is I wasn't supplementing her because I didn't think the chances of Pimpy being able to throw a kit being under 5 months old were too high. But I had been weighing her Pretty evenly for a while. Will get those out tomorrow and let everyone know. Either way she had been having Mazuri, hay, and bottled water the whole time.

She dropped down to 695 this morning and is back up to 700... She doesn't weigh too much if she is that pregnant though..

Since he was so young, there's a possibility that his sperm wasn't viable. He may not be developed enough to actually get her pregnant.

I had a chinnie deliver this morning that had only gained 60 grams in the last 9 months (she is 832 grams after delivery) and she delivered a 59 gram kit. We were starting to think that one of the two was sterile.


*Hoping you have kits coming soon*

Thanks Sassy.. Me too!! I can't wait until (hopefully) she has them. Or him. Or her. She just seems like she's showing more and more even since that picture. (and I just realized that I uploaded the wrong picture of her standing in her cage... didn't mean to do that one) When she lies down, she's got a flab of fat that squeezes out... She weighed 707 then 702 the next day and right now she weighs 705. *sigh*
