Default Hamster may be pregnant!

Hello, I am new to this forum but have a situation! I have had three hamsters in the past but got a new Syrian female two weeks ago. I noticed yesterday that her stomach looks quite big and she has built a huge nest in the corner of her cage. She is storing a lot of food and drinking lots of water and I have no clue what to do. I have avoided handling her and kept the noise down because I donít want her to be stressed but I still donít know if she is pregnant or not. Any advice would be much appreciated!
Thank you

I see you wrote 3 days ago. Did she give birth? can you hear squeaks? if not, she might need to see a vet because a swollen belly sounds serious.

Hello! Thanks for replying, she hasn’t given birth yet but is still showing signs, her stomach isn’t exactly swollen, it’s more round, so when she stretches you can see it sticking out a bit. I am 100% sure that it is not a tumor but if there is no babies in the next couple of days, I will definitely take her to the vet for a check up. It my also just be that she is a bit chubby because she has not had much room to exercise at the place we got her. Thank you for replying though and I will definitely keep an eye on her.

Hello, just a quick update, she is absolutely fine, just a bit chubby, she has stopped hoarding as much and I think she just likes to have a big cozy nest. Thank you so much for your advice though, it is much appreciated.
