How can you tell if a guinea pig is pregnant?

I was told by my guinea pig's previous owner that she thinks she's pregnant---I was wondering how you can tell.

see a vet or wait a week. her belly will get gigantic and feel lopsided. start feeding her alfalfa sprouts, collard greens, and maybe even some flax seed along w/her regular diet. these things have high nutritional value that she will need if she is pregnant.
block off the bottom 3 inches of her cage if it isn't already. i wasn't home when my guinea pig gave birth and the babies could squeeze through the bars. they couldn't/wouldn't stray far, but its still good to keep them contained.

A Vet can tell you, and you should ask what special needs your pet has if she is pregnant.
