just so people know: hamsters don't have to get bigger, some don't show any signs they are pregnant, so use behaviour, and just your own observations such as mating sessions food consumption yes nesting etc to draw this conclusion, but when in doubt, assume they are, and clean the cage as soon as u notice the nesting behaviour, yes mum might get upset but its better than having a dirty cage that will not be allowed to be cleaned properly for another few weeks

Your hamster would get bigger also you will realize that she will be a little protective. Her abdomen will be of course bigger, and tighter, and often her nipples will become more visible. She will also eat more and a few days before giving birth, she will be carrying lots of bedding off to make a nest. Do NOT clean the cage!

If the hamster is making a nest and eating lots and lots of food and if the tummy is big, she might be pregnant.

You know when your hamster is pregnant when you see that is it gotten huge in a short amount of time. Her stomach will be bigger than you have ever seen it. They will also begin to make a giant nest in the corner of the cage. She will take most of the shavings in the cage to make the nest. She will hide her self completely in the nest. DO NOT touch the babies if she has them because this may cause abandonment of the babies.
