mice are pregnant! how do i know when they will give birth?

so about a month or so back i got three pet mice, but the problem is i only now found out that one is male. the other two are very big at this point and i found out 2 days ago. of course i separated them from the male and put them in two separate bin cages with bedding, food and water. the bigger one has made a huge nest and the other has made a small one but doesn't seem like she wants to expand it at all... since they already made their nests how much longer will it be until they give birth?

    The gestation period is only about 21 days. You got them a month ago and they are big so you can expect babies soon.

    You got them a month ago, probably pretty soon. If there's on or more too many babies, TAKE THEM AWAY FROM THE MOTHER!! If a female hamster has too many babies, she will kill the extras.
