So I was looking into getting a pet pig. A woman I know had a pig that was a rescue that was pregnant. At first she said it was a potbelly, then she called them American Guinea hogs. I will still take one of the piglets either way i was just wondering witch breed they were. And for a time refferance the pigkets are about 3 weeks old. And the Mother is about 70 pounds.

I would say she is a either straight potbelly or a cross. She has the AGH face but the potbelly topline, AGH dont have a dip in their back. The AGH face and potbelly face are very similar though so could just be a pot belly. If she is cross or if the boar was an AGH you are likely going to end up with a much bigger pig then you thought. AGH range from 150-300 lbs, potbelly range from 80-200lbs. Our juliana boar at over 2yrs old is currently about 75-80lbs and about 18" tall. Given she is 70lbs she may even be a potbelly juliana cross, so depending on the boar she was bred to you could have a pretty small pig. You will have to wait and see, def get it used to living outside as that will likely be the only option, even a 70lb pig is very very destructive in a house long term.
