Telling if pig is pregnant

Hello,

Firstly I apologise if anything sounds silly, but we have no prior knowledge of pigs before rescuing two as below.

We have had two rescue pigs from 6 months old (both now 18 months), one male and one female.

We have recently started to suspect that the female may be pregnant due to increased size in both belly and teats!

On the weekend, we noticed that if you gently squeeze her teats a drop of milk comes out, which we were led to believe meant piglets within 24 hours! However, a few days has now passed and she has shown no signs of farrowing. 

If milk is present, does this mean she is definitely pregnant, and if so should we have seen piglets by now?

Thanks for your help!
