eee babies!! I agree with the nice quiet place for her. I covered my girls cage with a towel and she had them pretty quick after she started her crazy nesting!

Good Luck lilspaz and Bronwen (love her name btw!!)

Still no babies, but she's rotund, I weighed her and took quick pictures and stroked her til she bruxed (doesn't take long   ;D).  She's still sweet but has been test nibbling a bit more when in the cage.  She is in the livingroom in a dark quiet corner and I covered her cage with a dark fleece throw.

C'mon people, tell me there's no more than 4-5 babies in this little girl? 


Yeah right!!!   :doh: :eek:

Hahaha...I can take it!!  I think...*gulp*

OMG I just peeked into Bronwen's cage and she is on her shelf trying to sleep facing away from me.  I saw what I thought was a contraction!! And then afterwards high up on her flanks she flutters and moves.  Are we imminent now?    :hyper:

Lots of contractions and her breathing has changed.  She has gone back to lying on her shelf again but I can see the ripples and lil jumps she makes.  Her expression is enduring at this point.  :P  When she was lying down at the bottom of her cage, she would have a contraction and then start grabbing papertowel and dragging around. lol

Don't worry as soon as she lies down stretches out a bit and its starting to look more serious I will drape the cover back on her cage so she can get on with it.  :D

May I join the Pinky Dance with you dwankrista?  ;)

Well considering the pictures, she looks to be about the size of my rescue girl Sable, but a little smaller. Sable had 9 survive. I'd say no more than 8 or 9. But it is hard to tell, depends on the babies and whether the antibiotics could have stinted their growth any. But I doubt you'll have any troubles, just keep an eye on her.

I was just able to read through this whole thread!  Wow, you have some luck!  But, I'm happy it's YOU who has this stuff happen, because I know how amazing of a rattie mommy you are, and others wouldn't do what you do for your babies.

So many babies comin' 'round!

It's pinky season! :hyper: Make sure we have pictures, and are we awarding the correct guesser with the honor of naming a bub?

I guess 10 bubs!

C'mon, Bronwen, make me a winner! (and take good care of the babes, like we all know you will!)

The fuzzy ones have taken over my brain!

C'mon Bronwen, I have been up and down ALL night, checking this thread, get with the program girl LOL!  It's soooooo exciting, cannot wait, sending lots of *calming, serene vibes* across to Bronwen and mittens to rattie mum, to stop her chewing her nails.  :cheeky: :yelcutelaugh: :heart:

I've decided to treat this event like Christmas when you were a kid.  You can stay up as late as you like but Santa only shows up when you are asleep..LOL....BUT there's nothing to stop you waking early early to see if he came!

She's still lying on her shelf watching me now.  Now I feel like I am Waiting for Godot.   :doh:

Good luck waiting for him. From what I hear that guy is kind of a flake.  :yelcutelaugh:


But, seriously, make her have them faster!

This is worse than waiting for ketchup to come out of the glass bottle at restaurants!

Hahaha...you're not an insomniac because of Bronny are you?  You're just joining the Watch? I'd feel guilty if my tardy wench was keeping people from their beds...


Oooh finally.  She's on the bottom of the cage tearing into the paper towel again.   :thumbsup2:
