Hello, I have a pare of velveteen lops that I recently bred. Long story short I’ve tried breeding a million times but the doe wouldn’t lift. I was finally able to get her bred by leaving the buck in there for a week. (This was her breeders idea, she had bred her in the past and had the same issue and this solved it for her) this worked! I palpated her a bit after I took the buck out, maybe 10 or 11 days after I originally put him in and I think I was able to feel the tiny babies! (This was my first time palpating a doe) This led me to believe that she was bred on the same day that I put him in there.
fast forward to now, today’s (May 8th) should be day 30 of her being pregnant. (She is not a first time mom, but I haven’t bred her yet only the breeder I got her from) she has not started nesting or anything yet. It’s beginning to worry me with how many times I’ve tried to breed her and came back with nothing. So I guess my question is does she look pregnant to you guys? I’m pretty sure I can see babies moving around in there but I’m not sure. If you do think she’s pregnant can anyone tell me about how far along you think she is just by looking at her?
thank you for the help, I’m just really excited and anxious!

this video shows what I believe to be babies kicking but I could be wrong. Also please do not judge her cage being a bit messy. I’ve been cleaning every 2 weeks instead of every week so I wouldn’t have to handle her quite as much and disturb her if she is pregnant. Plus she is very grouchy haha

tldr: I believe my rabbit is pregnant but I’m not sure how far along, she isn’t nesting and it’s worrying me
