    Please take a look at this video and tell me if you think she is pregnant, by the way she acts and her stomach size.
    If she were pregnant she would be roughly 1 and a half weeks gone.

    It's often not possible to tell if a rat is pregnant until they're a few days off of giving birth, at which point some does will look like they've swallowed an orange. As it's possible all the girls in the cage are pregnant because your boys got in with them then you should seperate them into mary/ ruffy/ zoo zones 2 1/2 weeks after the earliest date that they chould of mated. If they get to 3 1/2 weeks after mating without babies then you're probably safe.

    That's good then. You should be able to handle 2 litters, even if they are on the large side.

    What i suggest you do it weigh her, and write it down.
    Tehn weigh her the next day and the next day and the next day for about 1 week maybe more, You will see if she is gaining weight.

    My pregnant female put on 100grams in 6 days, this way you'll see if she is gaining any extra weight.
