Default Hedgehig overdue now day 45 and no babies advice anyone please.

I've never experienced this and neither has my breeder friend ..... My tiggy was confirmed pregnant by a vet yet it's now day 50 or 45 depending from the start to finish. She is not putting in more weight and her bump at the back is very small. There has been no blood at all in her cage and not one squeak heard. I work from home and her cage is near my room so I'm positive . Any theories ?? I'm worried she's canabolised but she's been left alone in peace I just check very quietly and don't disturb her . She just sleeps loads. Going crazy now ....anyone know ? Really appreciate any replies ....

Still no babies and she is a lot less active and when she is she just seems to destroy her cage ... Knock over her bowls turn the next box over and so on which is unlike her . She has been eating but avoiding her worms she usually love sand not as much but still some ...

All she does is sleep now .... Anyone advice. I have not held had her out or in her own for a week but as nothing j happebing and she seems also grumpy I put her in her playpen today and she literally just splatted on the floor n didn't move 😞 the vet doesn't seem to care what I say as a not experience in hedgehogs and the other vet I rang said emergencies only for exotics sand in over reacting :s

How did the vet confirm she is pregnant?? It can take up to 55 days from the last day they were exposed to the male.

She physically checked her over and felt her stomach for quite a while and said she was sure she could feel at least too babies in there but warned I should not try feeling myself incase I rupture the uterous horns etc. She was also sure that her behaviour in increased weight , eating and sleeping so confirmed this. However she said gestation was between 28 to 44 not 55? But she's never heard of later than 41 personally but it can happen. I've spoken to her of issues and she seemed unsure as tiggy is now not leaving the nest, barely eating and huffing big I just walk in the room . I've left her in piece and still no babies . I'm looking for more reassurance and information if anyone else has has thus I have read 55,myself and know the basic breeding facts from breeders and books but personal experience offers more reassurance . Her poo has been green and slimy today which I know can be a cause for concern

If you're concerned then I would make a vet appointment to make sure there isn't anything else going on such as a stalled labour.
