      Mine constantly cooked under the ceramic

      Yeah basically I think she ovulated and then had her POS back in Oct maybe very early Nov, then went into shed again quite a while later, never found that one and assumed it was the POS because she was so big, probably from being pregnant way back at that first shed.

      Confusion. But I think everyone gets what I mean lol. Would put her on track to deliver now and shes acting the part. I got some great pics will post them tomorrow.

      Also the male still isnt eating but zero interest in rhe female if I put him in. So not sure whats up with him. My DH snow appears to be ovulating 0.o without a male. So maybe that's kept him in breeding mode? Not sure. He hasnt eaten since late Dec so hoping he snaps out of it soon...


      And thanks! Glad to be back. Gonna try to keep it that way haha

      Canít wait to see the pics. Hopefully of little ones, That be good if they was due any time now if it was Back in October/November then your right itís anytime in the next few weeks itís so exciting, the swelling could of been her ovulation

      I thought mine had caught back in November like she did last time but she came in shed again a month later, Iíve swapped males and there constantly locked now so I hope this is it
      Now

      Lol now I am confused. She looks oddly thin compared to 4 days ago. Do they typically thin out just before giving birth? This one female is confusing the hell out of me lol

      No babies yet obviously.

      And congrats!! Glad to hear youre in luck haha

      Thanks
      I was like that last year , was she wasnít she, one day she looked massive then other days she looked emptyís they must move around a bit in the sack inside her it really did me head in, but with here not shedding and going off her food about six weeks in (I only offered her small rats anyway, large food can pop babies out prematurely)and her constantly basking under the ceramic I was quite optimistic
      She is 7 and only 5ft, so I didnít expect loads,she only had a small litter of 5 and 7 slugs so Iím hoping there will be less slugs this year
      Good luck, its so exciting

      Another update.. I know.. No pics yet. But havent had the time to upload and copy / paste from an image hosting site yet lol.

      Anyways, she dropped a VERY small poo, didnt look as waxy as the other one. She has a noticable buldge just before her tail and her tail is looking thin like shes sucking it in.

      She paces and then rests. Paces and then rests.


      I bought a 350 dollar fetal doppler so gonna try to hear some baby heart beats tomorrow morning... Knowing my luck she'll drop them tonight before I get a chance lol.

      At least then Id have it for the other female that was paired up. Again.. Knowing my luck she'll pop out of the blue tonight as well LMAO

      Yeah I figure thats how itll happen lol.

      I just very briefly tried the fetal doppler. Didnt hear any heart beats but it did start showing visual heart beats (on the counter) in areas that her heart shouldnt be lol.. So.. Yea looks promising. On the other hand I have no clue how to use it properly. Will try again tomorrow.

      Lol yea.. Both females that were paired are really grumpy at the moment. Straight Bs. She was huffing and puffing so I put a hide over the front half of her and she calmed down quick.

      It was registering heart beats near her tail but wasnt audible was just on the counter. So.. I guess that means theres babies lol. No matter how obvious it is I am still not accepting it until they arrive darnit haha

      Ok so Im a bit panicked and worried. Shes been pacing so much that her nose is starting to look raw. Hot spots are 91f controlled by herpstat 4 and ve 200s. Ambient room temp between 77-80f and ambient room humidity is 55-60% with spikes up to 80% at times.
      Fresh water daily, all have hides the whole 9 yards.

      But shes been pacing this way since the 2nd or 3rd of Feb. Assumimg husbandry is all perfect and that the only confirmed lockup was Nov 10th and thats all I can say for sure about the pairing at this point... Then I dont know what the hell is happening and starting to panic lol...

      People said up to 3 weeks so when she had those weird waxy looking poos I decided to wait but 3 weeks is a long time to let her just face rub to hell and everything.

      Tried to get the help of someone with a portable ultrasound because I dont want to haul her 2 hours to a vet on public transit. But that person never got back to me.

      Thats all the updates for now.. As we speak shes still pacing and rubbing. *sigh*
