My other ham did the same thing before she had babies. Except we keep our hamsters and hedgies in Rubbermaid containers (with holes drilled yadda-yadda) SUCH a great idea. Easy to clean, locked up tight and little noise.
But this is a foster ham from work, so she is housed how they like... But she and the babies are doing well and growing.

I think the chewing is quite normal for a preggy hamster. Our hamster nibbled on the wires of her cage prior to her birthing. Giving her something to chew temporarily stopped her act. We have a teddy bear hamster.
Good luck on taking care of them! Just be observant on what she does. Try covering her tank too to isolate her so she'd feel more safe. I did just that when our hamster gave birth and all the little jellybeans survived. ^_^

|sweetergrrrl||Yeah it was the noise. Luckily mom had her babies that night. 6 little jellybeans. She is so busy taking care of them now, she could care less about the world around her|

Aww! Can't you bribe him? I find beef jerky works wonders with my husband.
Is it the noise that's bothering him?

|sweetergrrrl||My boyfriend is making me take her back tomorrow.|

|Aether||Ugh! Nothing worse than that sound! Other than the clanking noise of them pushing their wheel against the glass repeatedly. =P|

|sweetergrrrl||She has been freaking out all night with chewing on the side of the aquarium. So I am kind of hoping that she has her babies tonight/soon because the sound of the teeth on glass is driving us nuts...|

Bless your heart!! Not many people would offer to take a pregnant animal home and care for it like that! I love my Syrian, but he's a boy so I've never dealt with any preggo hammies.
I just wanted to thank you for being an awesome person. =] Also, the 20 min trip may stress her out, but I think it would stress her out more being in a pet store with other animals. It has got to be a lot more quiet and calm at your house than any store could be!
