Again, all these things DO NOT affect the baby in early pregnancy, it only starts to have an effect in the fourth month (teeth) and nine month for liver.

is that from a human site or a rat site for after birth?

and don't worry too much lilspaz... i am pretty sure the babies will be okay.

AngelRatGirl, My apologies, I thought I explained myself, I know what I mean  :-[   

I could only find tests done on rats, for the purposes of human information.  So the results are given as to what happens to a rat on these meds pregnant.   

Sorry, I'm finding it hard to fully clarify, but as Shelagh has stated, there do not seem to be any tests done on rats, for rats use, so we have no recourse but to look at these tests.  :(

Hope this helps.  :) :heart:

When I first started reading this thread, I looked at your girl and thought "silly Shelagh is being too worried.. Maggie's nipples look JUST like that (actually a bit bigger.... You can't even see Emma's)"..................
I take it back!
Oh my... this is not what you need right now.
I've been thinking about adopting in the near future.... I may just be a candidate when she pops!
Keep us updated.

Oh yeah, definately preggers... *hugs*  Good luck with the bbs.  When they start to show like that, it usually is a sign that the bbs will be there within a couple days.  Id wager a guess: 3 days from now?

Will she be fine without a box or anything like that?  I put one in and she shoves it away and sleeps in the corner like she always does...hahaha

I guess I should think of this as part of those learning processes. Like learning how to inject Sub-Q with Soma, and Selene's pyoderma and re-socializing Shrek and intro'g him back to Bella, etc. You need to go through experiences to learn with our ratfriends I find.   ;)  She is the sweetest thing, so it could be worse. I am hoping for a small healthy litter, and no problems from the 4 days of Doxy.

At least the Ottawa rats have almost all been rehomed so that is good, but I guess I was fated to have a litter and I did such a good job rehoming the Ottawa family that Fate stepped in and dropped an egg on my head.  ::)

It is fate. You seem to have only the best rats... these will certainly be the best babies  :)
I figure, if you give her a box and she wants to use it she will... can't force anything, right?

Well she gained 17 grams since yesterday, so she is gonna explode   :yelcutelaugh:

Do rats get sore like pregnant humans during their pregnancy?  Would she appreciate some back massage (gently of course)?  She loves the pats and body strokes right now, she just keeps shifting like she is a bit uncomfortable.

if she is still accepting rubs then i would give her rubs every chance you get. and i can totally understand her shifting around. she doesn't want to just relax and cause any additional discomfort to her charges inside. what you can to is kind of cradle her tummy in your arms so that her tummy hangs freely. if you feel movement like kicking or serious shifting in her tummy, you will know that she will pop in the next day or two.

i had a chance to see little ones kick and move inside a pregnant rat i had charge of and it was so amazing to watch for it. kindof like watching for shooting stars.

i think she is gonna let you handle her babies from day one (or two) too. if she were gonna be biting and protective, she would have already started. she trusts you.

I know it's a shot in the dark, but maybe if I put the idea out there, Bronwen will take it into consideration..

5 total. 3 boys, 2 girls.

7 because ratties are mischievous and always give us more than we ask for!

3 girls and 4 boys.

Good luck. I doubt the meds will cause any significant damage, if any. Just give her a little added calcium just in case and keep an eye on them. If the babies were bad off, her body would have aborted the pregnancy. I hope she doesn't have too many. Can't wait to see the babies.

After ignoring everything for a week and refusing to sleep in the box I see Bronwen is shredding paper and really nesting with the paper towel in the box.   Is this it folks?  Is she going to wait til I go to sleep (I have a vet run in the morning so I need some sleep) and I will wake up to little eeps?

This is it, lilspaz!

Move her to a quiet, warm area (preferrably dark) so she can give birth in peace. Don't handle her - she's either in labour or just about to go into labour, and it's gunna be sore  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Eepers should be here in the next 24 hours! Good luck!

Nothing yet.  She has gained 10 grams since yesterday, but she is pretty quiet today.  I am off to the vets today to have the lil spayed girls staples removed and will be gone for 4 hours...wanna bet the wench does it then?
I will let everyone know as soon as I hear/see anything .   :yelcutelaugh:

Everything's crossed, I hope little Bronwen has a trouble free delivery, I'm sure she'll be a good mum, there's just something about her........mmmmmmm maybe being the cutest, gentlest little PEW girl helps  :cheeky: :heart:
