She is now either getting ready to lay again or she is fat and iam worrying about nothing!

She was standing up on all her legs this morning and her gut was touching the floor :D

I got to try to remember to weigh her , thing is iam scared of picking them up.Iam ok if someone puts them on me but the actuall lifting iam scared of, so i cant do it now while i remember and by the time the boys come home i have forgotten!It sucks having a bad memory

Expect a period between 3 & 4 weeks between clutches.

How can you tell if they are egg bound?

Lizzy has been constantly digging and trashing her viv for few weeks now, doing exactly what spike done before laying.She is digging so much her toes are curling up when basking, she is also very sleepy past 3 days , ive turned her lights on later and off earlier as she is tired.She is not touching her salad but still went mad over the roaches yesterday, not had a poo for couple of weeks either.She is the one who brumated.

Has she got somewhere to lay? They will keep trashing things until they find somewhere they think is adequate. Can you feel any eggs in her? They'll be in a row either side of her body just inside the rib cage.

Looks as if one of the eggs has been broken (probably by her claws) and what you can see is a mix of yolk and substrate.

Sometimes they'll keep a couple back and lay later. How many in total in this clutch?

Probably about the lot then - 21 is a reasonable clutch but if she goes for a third batch then it should be less than this number.

Sinse laying Lizzy has really gone down hill.She is not eating at all, still no poo and she is so lerthargic.

last night she put her self to bed at 6pm.She ahs also not basked past 2 days.She has crawled out from just under her rock and not moved all day ,she is very flat but wont climb up onto her basking rock. she is very dark and i can just tell she is not right.I think it is a vet job , iam so worried.She looks so skinny now she has laid them all
