I would do what Maggie said and cut back on the tums. My current mother bunny only gets half a tum one to two times a week. Never more except when she first gave birth she got a whole tum. I would suggest investing in fresh raspberry leaves they would be better and can help ensure when she does give birth she doesn't retain placenta. If I can find the link there is a whole page on herbs and how they can help your bunny.

I have left the nesting box in her cage. She digs in it a lot, but I don't think she's preparing a nest anymore, just digging for tums. I have stopped her tums and will start looking into raspberry leaves. She still seems touchy and kinda lazy, but other than that she shows no signs of going into labor anytime soon.
