You also need to understand this is hedgehog central, not hedgehog breeder central. 99% of the members have zero breeding experience.
Most people shouldn't breed, they don't have the resources, finances, maturity, proper stock or countless other reasons. That is why you won't find a how to breed post. If you breed deliberately and responsibly, you have done your research, made your contacts and done your footwork. Therefore that nonexistent how to breed post isn't needed.

Read this thread from 2012. https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forum...-hedgehog.html

If that doesn't help, using the search window above, type "signs of pregnancy". I'm not a breeder and I've only had one hog one year, but what I have learned by searching for you is that the symptoms may be nothing at all. Or you could see:
-Bulkiness or weight gain
-Engorged nipples
-Nesting
-Some erratic behaviors

Are you experiencing any of those and they made you concerned? As Two said, breeding hedgehogs honestly isn't much fun. Moms and babies are super sensitive. That's one reason why we don't just toss advice out to everyone and instead suggest you find a mentor to help you. That way when bad things happen you have consistent support from someone you personally know. It's not that we're trying to shun you, it's that the breeders here have seen more than their share of dead, half-eaten baby hedgehogs and are not looking to promote that. I can only imagine it wears a person down fast.

I hope that helps.

Also there is a difference from your first question and your last post, generic broad questions have a lot of stickies around to read while specific questions like the second part are easier to answer.

If you ask a general very open question is hard to know what you already know and what you are really lookin for and people don't enjoy wasting time while they can be helping someone who really needs it. People with experience in breeding have other jobs and they come here to try to help people, most people are new to hedgehog owning and in pregnancy is most likely due to negligence or reciving an already pregnant hedgehog and need emergency help and information. Having a breeder on your side puts you ahead of the curve.

If there is a specific thing you feel the breeder is not helping you with, feel free to ask.

Thank you for actually providing helpful information. You really didn't have to go searching yourself on my behalf! (:
There is nothing going on with her that concerns me, I was just wondering what to look for if she was pregnant, and I thought why not just ask the forum and see what others have experienced, aside from just my mentor because I'm not very active here. I've not come on this forum frequently.
Together, my mentor and I are prepared for if the bad things happen. Mentally and physically, we have what we need. So, thank you again, I am going to continue my search for experiences others have had. (:

Well I did post in the Breeding and Babies Help area for a reason, so the few breeders on this site, or even anybody who has had the experience, could chime in with their own opinions/experiences.
