When the rabbit begins making a nest (pulling fur) she is getting close to kindling. If you gently feel her abdomen you may be able to feel the kits moving. A big belly doesn't show until the end of the pregnancy, so if she is pregnant she will give birth soon. If you think she is pregnant, give her a nest box, or a cardboard box so she can build a nest.

hi, my pet rabbit is also pregnant for almost 40 days now (i think). because she gained weight, her tummy is big!, she’s just laying down a lot, and she is losing fur. but she doesn’t make her nest or pull her dewlap.

i also palpated her tummy and there were movements. she’s not eating lots lately as well.

i’m really worried for her :-((

First prerequisite is a buck. If she was with one one month ago pregnancy is quite likely. If there is still an intact buck around seperate asap.
If there was no buck with her, it most likely is a false pregnancy and your rabbit is just a little on the heavy side.
Other than that, wait. offer hay and a nestbox, if it's a false pregnancy she will lose interest soon.

If you're worried see a vet or someone experienced with breeding rabbits, hard to tell anything definite on the internet.
