      Default Can a gravid female square up

      I have a female that I think/hope might be gravid. When she is laying in one spot her back 1/3rd to 1/2 looks bulged out on the sides. Visually it's a noticeable bulge, not crazy like some of these monsters I've seen but she has never been super super huge to begin with. I don't know if it's just my angle but when she is moving she appears to suck in her sides and looks like a square instead of round. I was told that they shouldn't be capable of doing that because obviously there should be babies in the way. Is that true or are they still able to do that? Also for a reference to time, providing I was spot on with her ovulation and everything, she is past her due date which is why I'm questioning everything now. Any help would be appreciated. She is/was a virgin if that helps.

      I was always guessing it was going to be a smaller litter just based on her size so that makes me feel better about it. I went and checked on her after I made my original post and she was laying in a great position that made her back end look massive like it was about to burst. I'm basically doing the same thing going back and forth about whether or not she is gravid. The majority of the time I think she is but every once in a while she'll make me think she isn't. Also just for clarification the standard is 105 days from POS correct? That's what I've been going by, but I've found multiple places lately that say anywhere from 100-120 days.

      That was exactly what I was like,lol, yes the average I 105 after pos, but as you say loads of gravid females can be early or late I heard of a 126 day, it's never set in stone just like humans, make sure you post
      Some pics when she's had them and remember she going to be quite defensive when your taking them out of there

      Just to update, she finally had her waxy stool late last night. Hopefully that means it's going to happen soon. I've decided I need to breed more pairs at a time so I'm not stressing over a single one haha. But in all seriousness though I just want her to have some healthy babies and to get her eating again. It's been a while and I worry about her.
