What are the signs of a phantom pregnancy in a rabbit?

The main sign of phantom pregnancy is nesting. The bunny will start to pluck out the hair on her chest and tummy to build the nest with. In the case of some rabbits they will pull hair out of a bonded mate to nest build also. You will often see a nesting bunny frantically running around with a mouth full of hay to take to her nest. If you bunny is nesting without reason (i.e. she has not been bred, she is spayed, she has not had any contact with a male) then you can pretty much be sure it is a phantom pregnancy. A phantom or false pregnancy can be detected in several ways. If you have not bred your doe you KNOW it is a false pregnancy. If she goes over 32 days it is a false pregnancy. You can palpate at 15 days and if you do not feel babies but she insists on nesting you will know it is a false or phantom pregnancy. A doe having a false pregnancy will nest just like a doe that is pregnant. I have witnessed some that tend to go overboard nearly stripping themselves naked because no babies come. The doe that you determine to be having a phantom or false pregnancy should be bred immediately. There should be no 'bonded mate' for a doe with phantom pregnancy every rabbit should have it's own cage.

For a while after giving birth a pregnancy test can still come back positive. However, you shouldn't be having sex for at least six weeks after giving birth. So there should not be a need to take a test at that time.

You took a pregnancy test and it came out negative you had your period the next day 4 days later you took another test and it came out positive Is it possible you are pregnant?

Yes it is possible. Some woman get there period during the first few months of pregnancy. You need to see a doctor to find out if you are pregnant. They check with a pregnancy test and if it is positive they will give you a sonogram to make sure that you are pregnant and that everything is ok with your pregnancy. Having a positive pregnancy test doesnt always mean that you are pregnant. Something else in your urine can be causing the test to come positive. But having a positive test can in most cases mean that you are pregnant. Check with your doctor, that is the only accurate way of finding out.
