It could be a false alarm yes, and hopefully yes. Just keep a close eye on them ;)
Good Luck

Yeah, it could have been a false alarm. ;) Hamsters usually start building nests when tehir instincts kick in, as they're warm.

If you do find yourself with hamster pups, just give her a lot of nesting material and don't disturb the cage, only for food and water refills. If a hamster wanders and gets lost its mother will put it back soon enough. If you disturb the nest or anything in the cage the mother will become defensive and eat the babies (rather than having them starve to death if she died, as an in-the-wild scenario would be).

Please do not put back the male after your babies have weaned as well - She needs her rest and no more mating.

Try to introduce all the baby boys to the dad and keep the mum with their daughters.
Babies are easy to sex by 4 weeks of age, I can sex mine at 3 weeks.

I don't think you want babies; I wouldn't 'hope' for them.
It can be expensive. I hope it was a false alarm.

You said your is robo hamster?? They dont get sexually until they are 4 month old (Or was it 6 month). So if your robo is still young, Dont worry, she is not pregnant..
