I believe the shortest gestation period would be the hamster. A hamster's gestation period is only 16 days.

The shortest gestation period known is 12 to 13 days, shared by three marsupials (pouched mammals): the American opossum; the rare water opossum of central and northern South America; and the eastern native cat of Australia. http://www.rarespecies.org/kids/furry.htm
