Default my small hedgie is throwing up

hello! so my hedgie is 10 weeks old and i have her for 5 days. she's been doing fine, she's very friendly and curious, however yesterday i let her ate and drink and after that i took her out of the cage, as i did the day before. however, this time when i tried to take her from the cage with the tshirt that it was in the cage, she was curled up into a bowl and managed to fell on the ground and rolled a bit. don't worry though, it was aproximately a 6 inch fall. after that, she walked for a bit and she started vomiting. i cleaned everything up, and played a little bit with her, blaming that it was my fault that she fell and trew up and putted her back in her cage. today i noticed that everything was fine, like she was eating and drinking as usual and i waked her up because my grandpa was visiting my house and wanted to see her (it was the first time i ever woke her up). i did it by slowly petting her and doing some belly rubs because she's not always sleeping into a ball. when i thought she woke up, i tried and take her out but she hurt me with her quills so i let her down. after that, i finally managed to wake her up, i letted her eat and drink, and i waited a few minutes to let her digest everything. i took her out of the cage with my tshirt, again, and i noticed that she was shaking a bit and she didn't ran as much. she started walking eventually, i let her play with the tshirt for a bit and i picked her up from there so she can hopefully run. however, she threw up again, not as much as yesterday though. my grandpa told me that it's probably because when i picked her up i touched her stomich, but i honestly don't know. tomorrow i will go with her to the vet and if she is sadly, going to past away, i have 2 days left where i can either buy another hedge, or get the money back. i'm blaming everything on me and i feel horrible. i have her for less then a week but i'm so attached to her.
i also want to mention that she's eating the same cat food the breeder gave her
please help me and sorry for my bad english 😞

i want to also mention that i picked her up with a scooping motion but i was also putting only my fingers on her belly and i didn't actually put my palm. is this why she's vomiting?
also i checked on her and she was in a ball, not sleeping, but shaking. i'm really scared

oh and one more thing that i noticed is that when i woke her up today (before i took her out), i just moved her dishes really close to her so that she could eat and drink because she was just standing there for a few seconds (idk just a small detail i though i could also tell)
and one more thing is that she sleeps a lot. eveb during night time. and as i'm writing this she sneezed a few times. is she sick or something or is this normal?

oh actually now that i'm thinking about it, i think that she didn't ate right away she woke up because she ate like 4 hours before and she usually yawns and streches before she starts moving
