Hello!

If she is pregnant, you will notice her eating and drinking more than usual, so she will gain weight gradually making her belly being more visible.

The recommended thing is to weight her once per week to see if she is gaining weight.

Normally, after 7th week of pregnancy, if you put our hand on her belly you can feel the babies. The pregnancy lasts about 63 days.

However, if she is not pregnant, she will have a heat period (estrus) every 16 days.

To know for sure if your guinea pig is pregnant, visit a veterinary specialist in exotics.

All the best.
