You should go out for a jog, do your daily things, watch some TV and then check again tonight at about 10-12pm.

Then again tomorrow AM and then again at 10-12pm

Check her once in the AM and once in the PM.

You don't want to stress her. I hear stressed moms can/will eat their babies.

no wheel...... nothing new in her cage. It will just stress her out. Plus she can injure herself if she is that big and pregnant.

As long as she was not in distress the last time you checked on her I would just leave her alone.

Depending on what cage you're using, it is possible that a wild mouse bred with her, making it so your daily count is off. Mice are more active between 10:00pm and 2:00am, and this is when mine usually have their babies. One of my mice had trouble pooping the day of her last litter. They were really big poops, and she would do a bunch at once, and the last one would get stuck half out. I hadn't seen this happen before, but just thought I'd throw that out their. Also, a lot of mice start grooming their genitals as they get closer to labor. Basically, curling into a ball and trying to lick away despite how fat they are. X D

But yes, the best thing to do is to leave them be other then giving feed and water, and to keep it dark and quiet. Those little buggers can hold them if they are stressed! Also, they can reabsorb litters, although it is less common in the later stages of pregnancy. But if you notice her thinning out and loosing that pear shape, their is a chance of it. Don't go poking her, but when you do your feeding just take a glance and see what you can see.

It is like the saying: A watched pot never boils. Hang in there mother nature will take it's course.

Ok- if you two just watch her and check on her as often as you are doing ( constantly it seems) she most likely is going to be so stressed that even if she has the babies with no problem she may kill them shortly after due to stress alone. I hate to be so forward but you are causing her extreme stress. Mice are prey animals. They like their dark and quiet places to have their babies and they do not do well under pressure or with an audience. I know you want to see them born but I recomend you just Google a video and watch that. She needs her space. I have now given all the help I can with this topic. Good luck with her.

Breeding mice , or owning them in general, requires patience. I am not trying to be mean, I am just being truthful.

Thank you for your straightforwardness! I guess patience is a virtue and a watched pot never boiled. She had 8! Cheer
