Where did you get her from? As the others have said when you lay your hands gently on her you may be able to feel movement. She certainly looks fuller behind however some sows that have had previous litters have a similar shape.

Sides and just underneath, only gently and you may have to wait a few mins to feel anything. Please try not to panic as she may not be pregnant. Do you know the woman she came from?

I know the woman she come from but cant get in contact with her, do you think its worth taking her to the vet tomorrow, i had a hold of her trying to feel for anything but the group started to fight without her there I'm really not sure what to do:{
If shes pregnant would the vets be too stressful for her or not?

Madison, Matilda, Melissa and April these are my guinea pigs and are rescues.
Two were just handed into my friend and she fosters for the rescue but i have had to take them on as fosters as she is over run with animals,i have very limited info about them. :{
Its all so confusing how this is working out, but Lilee is my foster piggy along with niamh, but the other four are mine.



ALSO;- The owner of this rescue is away visiting family and leaving all of the fosters to take in new animals and care for them :{

In that case try not to worry as the rescue lady can take them back on when she returns. Why not ask your foster friend to check the sow as she will probably be able to tell.

Hi,

she looks pregnant to me, gently cup your hands around the two bulges at the sides, if she is you may be able to feel either flutterings or kicks if she is.

Also is she drinking/eating alot?

well to be honest its hard to say wether or not shes drinking or eatting loads as there's 6 of them sharing food and water however, shes first to the food/hay and she is drinking a fair bit in the last 10 minutes shes had two goes at the water bottle and the others havent bothered with it.
Could she be possibly over weight or does she look pregnant?
what should i expect if she is, do i have to take her away from the group of girls or not?

I have a pregnant sow at the moment and she is eating like a horse, she also is hogging the litter tray with the hay she takes cat naps in it lying down to eat sometimes and will get grumpy if the other two approach.

sometimes if she is stressed with them you can separate her but I am keeping mine in with my other two sows until she has the babies.

The only way to tell is if you feel movement:))

To me they look like pregancy bulges, I have a fat sow and she looks different to that
