Default Yellow discharge?

For the second time today, I noticed a yellowish discharge coming from my female hedgehog. She also appears to put on weight...

Are these signs of pregnancy? She is still eating, drinking, sleeping normally, and her temperament hasn't changed, she is still extremely friendly, but squirmish.

Any help would be appreciated.

She is a pet-store hedgie, (no criticism please, she is from a provate pet-store that only carries one hedgehog at a time, I know the owners, and was very healthy and happy when I got her.)

Don't feel bad, I got Sonic from a pet store.

I'm not sure if she's pregnant or not but pet store hedgies tend to be more then likely to be because they are housed with males. How old was she when you got her?

I am not exactly sure. They said around 4 months, and shes quite large but finishing quilling. She wasent being housed with any other hedgehogs when we got her. I dont really feel bad, the nearest breeder to me is 8 hours, plus I handled her before I took her home.

Even if she wasn't with a male at the pet store she may have been with one before the store put her up for sale. I'd keep a close watch on her and read up on breeding and babies in case she is pregnant. Good luck.

What are you feeding her? Does she have a wheel?

Some clear or off-white discharge is pretty normal, I'm not sure about yellow. I would imagine it wouldn't be highly unusual, especially if it's just tinted a bit, but I'm not 100% sure.

How long did the pet store have her, do you know? If it was two months or more and you know she wasn't housed with other hedgehogs there, I highly doubt she's pregnant.

We bought her literally 2 days after she arrived at the petstore. I recently switched her food about a 4 days ago, but even before that it happened. It had sort of a yellow tint.
