Default Hedgehog Recently has started to bite me??

Hey Guys!
My hedgehog is around 34 weeks old.. I got her when she was around 8 weeks old. About a month ago I took her outside to play, and she was getting into something and when I picked her up she bit me (for the first time!!). And then later on I was picking her up and she tried to bite me a few more times, and that was the start of her biting, she's bit me a few more times since then, but recently over the last few days, she's been biting me quite a bit. The bites really aren't painful because I quickly pull my finger away, but I don't know as to what could be causing such behaviour, because she hasn't ever really tried to bite me till now. I have also realized that before she first bit me a month or so ago, she seemed a lot more tame when I handled her. Now she just hisses quite a bit when I pick her up and handle her. I love my her to death but I really dislike her behaviour!! Any suggestions on what to do, and any ideas on why she might be acting like this? ):
