Default New Owner; Diarrhea

I brought home my little girl a week ago today. She's almost 8 weeks old. It was a long car ride home, so she was understandably stressed and her poops had a little green mucous in them for a few days, but they soon became normal and she became well adjusted. She seems super happy and really friendly and loving, which I was not expecting at all. She never pooped in her hedgie bag and she did a good job of pooping only on the wheel or in her litter pan. But for 2 nights now I have awoken to find diarrhea, not only in her litter pan, but in her hedgie bag as well, and all over her cage. Other than this mess, everything is completely normal as far as I can tell. She's still drinking plenty of water and is very active and happy during playtime. Her eyes and nose still look normal. I'm wondering if this is some stressful environmental trigger? The day before the diarrhea started, she had both her first bath and her first meal worms. So, my question is, could this be stress related and something that I should wait out a little longer to see if it improves? Since I've only had her a week I can't really say what is "normal" for her and it's my first hedgie so I think I tend to overreact to small things. I thought I should ask for some experienced opinions.
