Re: holy 25 gram wieght gain!

As promised:

10 week weigh-in: 276 grams (9.74 ounces) +34 grams from 9 weeks.

Weigh-ins are post-poop-and-pee. I got both today. Pre-poop-and-pee: 290 grams. Total poop-and-pee: 14 grams.

Oops sorry. Now that I read back further I see she is not worried. I thought she was worried about her being pregnant too because you posted about yours in the thread.

10 weeks: ?? (The first several days, she was eating about 6 grams a night. She has steadily been increasing her consumption, and is eating 14 - 18 grams a night now. She would eat 100% of the Chicken Soup if I let her, so she gets a 'ration' of 8 or 10 grams (which she always eats first and entirely) and then fills up with Solid Gold.)

I don't know how much difference a pre-poop weigh-in would show. Maybe I'll weigh her twice tomorrow. She usually takes two big poops, one big pee, and two or three small poops - then she's ready for cuddling..
Since you've had her since she was 6 weeks old, the chance of her being pregnant is just about zero.

Re: holy 25 gram wieght gain!

im asking because she was got from a pet store and im worried she could be pregnant which i no is not healthy for a hedgie as young as her.

i dont have anything to compare it to since both my other girls are older . my boyfriend looked at sketch and even said her belly when you look from the side of her when shes standing is round.

Re: holy 25 gram wieght gain!

I had her out last night and she was running around her play area . I didn't notice anything in particular. She's kind of round all over, but I didn't see her belly as being especially so.

She'll get her 10 week weigh-in tomorrow. I'll post it her I'll try to get a pre-poop weight too. That might be tricky. She will not poop when I wake her up; only after I get her out. So we've got a system. I get her out with the litter pan, and then she goes very quickly (and a lot). But then she won't poop or pee at all the rest of the time that she is out. The trick will be getting a pre-poop weight right away.

It doesn't seem to me like the weight would be very much, but maybe I'll be surprised. Maybe there is more when they get older.?

Yes, totally normal. When a baby goes through a growth spurt they can gain very quickly. Also, as Immortalia mentioned, she may need to poop.
