Since your raising them as pets, then go ahead and give it another try but you really need to keep an eye on her come her due date, so the baby is not left out in the cold. Do you have a proper nesting box , to keep baby from coming out? I raise my rabbits for meat, so I only give them 2 chances to do it right or they go in the freezer. And yes, you can pick up a pregnant moma but like Kusanar said, as long as she dosent put up a struggle...

My parents won't let me get a nestbox.

Well, you know back in the early 70's, I raised New Zealand White's and I don't remember using nest boxes either but I do remember loosing a lot of babies and now, I know why. The box will protect them from crawling around, away from the fur, (I use hay in my best box, as well), which helps them keep warm! How big is the pen or cage you keep them in?

It's a medium single hutch. A bunny buisness single.
But I don't think there's enough room for a nest box and standing space in the bedding area.

Even if there was, they won't let me get one. I asked and they said I was being obsessive and didn't need it.
(I'm autistic).

I've caused rows trying to get it.
