Re: Prominent nipples on young female...I felt the babies!!!! Update 08/20

Its 10:20 pm here and the babies are moving non-stop practically.  Those lil eepers are so active, and you can see them pushing and shifting under her skin.  Bronwen is not as comfortable about being held.  She tries to relax and mush into my lap for the stroking but then gets fidgety and starts moving around, so I put her back in her cage.    I can still pat her in the cage all I want, and its very happily received by her.   My guess is tonight or during the day tomorrow.  :)

I can't wait til I can take a proper deep breath.  :)

Aww! She's just waiting for me to have a day off of work! She knows how much I wanted to be there for the two of you, and she just couldn't bear the thought.  :yelcutelaugh:  Least, that's what I'm going to tell myself. Okay, Bronwen! I've got my coffee, and I'm prepared!  :thumbsup2:

Your poor fingers must be raw, having gone through all your nails! It's a good thing you don't get eepers very often, you wouldn't have anything but stumps. Course, I'm one to talk; I just stopped biting mine back in June, haha!

In the words of my sweet friend while trying to coach his dear friend and his dear friend's wife through her delivery, "Remember your breathing exercises.. Both of you.."  The 'dear friend' was military and was in Korea for the majority of his wife's pregnancy, so my friend wound up having to talk him through talking his wife through her delivery. Very funny story that.

Gosh no!  Why ever would you think there would be eepers?    :wink5:  She did manage to gain yet another 10 grams.
At least I know they are in there!   :cheeky:

I am going out to meet 2 people from this board for a ratty toy shopping trip and then back here to meet the Horde, and hopefully some new faces...I will be gone for about 4 hours   ;D

Every morning I wake up and her cheerful little face is looking at me with a "What?" expression.   She is really very fidgety in the last day or so, so I have high hopes but no expectations.  LOL

All together now "C'mon Bronwennnnnn!!!!"

All I can hear is one of them.  Bronny decided not to nest after all with the lovely ripped up paper towels but to dig under the paper towel lining her cage and I can't see a damn thing!!   :-\

What a lovely sound.   ;D ;D

I hope she's doing okay under there.   :BlueDumboSmile:

I'm going to quietly sit near the cage and see if I can hear more of them.  :)

Pics and stuff will have to wait....lets get them all born first    :yelcutelaugh:

I saw at least 3 babies with her, and she is the protective mom (putting herself between the babes and me) but not nippy or anything...Just a "Not just yet Mom..."

Bronwen would have to be the sweetest little soul in the world, so far, three wonderful little pups, so are we calling them..........the Bronlings  :yelcutelaugh:  When you are permitted, please give Bronwen a scritch and a chin rub, from me.  Well done little Bronwen and Congratulations to the new Ratgrandmamma  :yelcutelaugh:

Yay!!!  :blob3: :blob5: :blob6: :blob7:

Bronny's such a good girl, having em before you left out to shop. I'm so happy for you both! She'll finally be able to really enjoy those scritches now that she doesn't have a mass of Aliens moving around in her belly. And we'll finally get to see eepers!

See, I told you she was waiting for me to have a day off.  :wink5:

Well there are a lot more than 3 babies (I lifted the papertowel) and I noticed some dark eyes and some light eyes so we might have a mixed colour litter.
I managed to get one pic...and I think she is feeding them now.  I will check for milk bellies when I get back in a few hours.  Let the poor Mom sleep and relax a bit.   :)

I managed a couple of bad pics...Bronwen wasn't upset at this at all.

hehehehe, i knew it would be today. when they start doing summersalts in mom's tummy they are lining up to come out. those babes have already felt love and will be ever so sweet to whoever adopts them. mom will make sure of that.

i bet she is beaming. tired but beaming. or is it glowing...

find some smooth black cloth or some other dark color for when you start taking pics of the bubs. it makes for some very striking pictures.

jaw rubs and smoochies for bronwen.

Okay, there are 13 babies in total and Bronny was awesome, and charmed Spatx and Moonsingingfreak with how sweet and gentle she was.  She spent the time on the couch having a little explore and cleanup.  Some have dark eyes and some have light eyes.  They all have milk bellies of some sort and ooooh baby baby rats are the sweetest!!!!!!  Little tiny paws, little mouths that think your hand is a nipple!  They are all lively and Bronwen seems like she is going to be a good mom.  Dark cloth is noted, how about a turquoise fleece instead?

Wheeeeeeeeee!

Congratulations on your (Bronwyn's) litter. I hope that they are all miracles of health and, when the time comes, easy homing.

 :balloon: CongRATulations!  It is such an awesome experience.  It's so neat watching them grow and change everyday.  Wait until they open their eyes and start wrestling and eating paper in the nest.  It is the most adorable thing ever!  Enjoy it!!  :balloon:

Yea, my guess of 5 was waaayyy off, but I figured it would be. They're so adorable! I'm glad everyone's doing well!

Do you have a theme, or are you just going to name them?
