If she has eggs you can tell by GENTLY putting your fingers under her shell between her front and back legs, closer to her back legs. If she is gravid you will be able to feel the eggs BUT you have to be very gentle in case you hurt her or damage the eggs. They normally lay the eggs around 30 days.
