Default Pregnant?

I had gotten a hedgehog from my local pet store a few months back and he has just always been a little grouchy, I did as recommended for bonding with him and he is okay with me but I was worried so I went to where I got him and asked if there was anything I could do (Stupid of me to think they'd help) they said that he just might be lonely and recommended I get him a friend. I did and she is about 2 or 3 months, I introduced them and they got along well. After about an hour I read online that he would try and get her pregnant and that they aren't sexually mature till 5 months and since she is so small she could get sick so I separated them immediately. I never saw him mount her, he mainly stayed in a ball. Now she is filling her igloo with a lot of bedding and she's really warm from her belly, is she pregnant and should I be worried?

She most likely is pregnant. Females can become pregnant as young as 8 weeks old. Please read over all the information in the breeding and babies section. You will not be able to let them come in contact with each other even supervised. They are going to have to be keep apart all the time from now on. Please make sure they are in separate 100% escape proof cages.
