I'm afraid you already know what the answer is ... get her spayed! Until you do she'll probably keep on having phantom pregnancies :cry: Plus spaying takes away the risk of her developing uterine cancer.

BTW I presume there is no chance that she IS pregnant is there?

If she is your only Rabbit and has not had contact with an un-neutered male in the last 30 or so days then it is a pseudo-pregnancy.
Getting her spayed will stop these happening (pseudo-pregnancy is stressful for the Bun). Spaying will also protect her from uterine (womb) cancer

Dont remove the nest she has made, she'll only make another one and tire herself out in the process. The symptoms should subside in a day or so but may well happen again unless she is spayed
