You can tell they're pregnant by them eating and drinking a lot. They will also not let you rub their Belly.

My guinea pig is pregnant right now and her belly is getting a pear shape. You can also feel the babies move and see the babies move.

You usually can't tell too much until they start getting a lot more pear shaped.

Their teats also become larger and more prominent, it is usually about half way into the pregnancy (roughly 1 month) that you begin to notice that.

my guinea pig is pregnant and i think it is the last week of pregnancy and if i put my hands under her belly and make my fingers touch i can feel the piglets moving

P.S. its so cool

I think my guines pig is pregnet and her teats are really long and they scare me and i need to know when they will be born or do they do anything to tell you that there coming??!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------When the babies are coming the female guineapig will let off a grunt that it has never done before when this happens the first babie may have allready been born or is being born and there is no sure way to tell if your guinapig is pregnant unless it has grown a lot and has a pear shaped belly.

you wouldn't notice for about 4 weeks but gradually its tummy gets bigger
here are signs that your guinnea pigs pregnate. When guinea pigs are pregnant their nipples don't start to enlarge until the last few days and labour, so you shouldn't have to worry about her being pregnant. It would have been careless for the petstore to keep males and females together as well. I will provide for you a list of the weekly signs of pregnancy.

Week 1 No signs

Week 2 Sow may start drinking more

Week 3 Sow will start gaining weight, there will be a tightening of the abdomen muscles.

Week 4 An experienced breeder will be able to feel small foetuses

Week 5 Sow usually looks noticeably pregnant, taking on a rather rounded appearance. You will be able to feel the outlines of the foetuses.

Week 7 You will be able to feel 'quickening' this is when the babies kick

Week 9 It may become difficult for the sow to move around but she should still be active and eat and drink as normal.

The pelvic bones will separate sometime during this week

Week 10 The babies will be born

Best of luck with your guinea pig!
Your guinea pig will begin to look like an eggplant in shape. Later on, you can gently feel the babies. Her nipples will lose the hair around them before birth.
It will get fatter and it's behavoir will change. Maybe take it to the vets if you are worried. If the guinea pig has come into contact with a male guinea pig recentley and the boy has not been neutred it may be pregnant. This is really dangerous if the guinea pig is over 1yr old. Please take it to the vet if it has come across a boy over the past few days! Hope this helps Laura
when babies start popping out

When I got my guinea pig, we didn't know she was pregnant, so about a month later, my sister got one that wasn't pregnant. It was a little less that a month after that that my guinea pig had 2 babies. During that time, though, Molly, the pregnant guinea pig, was acting very territorial, and Milly, the non pregnant guinea pig, was staying by herself and not having anything to do with Molly. So make sure that if you put a pregnant guinea pig with a non pregnant guinea pig, that the non pregnant guinea pig is a girl, or else there WILL be trouble.

A guinea pig can only get pregnant if a male guinea pig has humped it. A guinea pig may have fallen pregnant while it was in the pet shop or where ever you got it. Now if you think she is pregnant it is important to research breeding guinea pigs.

I don't think there is a test to tell if a guinea pig is pregnant, but a pregnant guinea pig will not let you rub its stomach. If you are still unsure, take your guinea pig to a vet.

hi there I'm Chloe Brooks and i own a guinea pig farm so i will tell you what to do if your pregnant female guinea pig is with other female (not pregnant) guinea pigs then its fine and she can give birth to the babies with the other guinea pigs if your pregnant female guinea pig is by her self then she will be fine to give birth to her babies if your pregnant female guinea pig is with a male(s) guinea pig then its best to separate her 2 weeks before her babies are due as female guinea pigs can become dominant and aggressive towards males when there pregnant I hope that your guinea pig will have lovely babies good luck for you and your guinea pig! greets Chloe Brooks

You will know if your guinea pig is pregnant if she is VERY large around the tummy. She will also eat and drink a bit more the usual.
