She is extremely heavy and holding a lot of eggs. Has she been trying to dig? Looks like your only using dirt. moist playsand holds tunnels better.

It is very normal for them to go off food when they need to lay. Now if she has not been able to lay them then your looking at egg binding issues which means you need a reptile vet.

Depending on what supplements you use she may be getting vitamin A. If you want to share what you use I can tell you if it does.

Here are the help questions. The more detail you provide, the better able we’ll be able to help figure out what may be going on with your girl.
Has she been lethargic? Staying low in her enclosure/not basking? Eyes closed during daytime? If yes to any, I’d be making the soonest vet appointment I could as she could be having problems laying.

So I would watch her carefully. Has she laid eggs for you before? It looks like you are going to have your hands full with a ton of babies.

What condition did she come to you in?
She was under weight eye infection and she gave me stuff for her for dietary but when I got her she would eat all the time for me Soo she was in-between fair and poor health but she quickly bounced back up in weight held it on poops and pees fine but rn not so much cause the eggs how long do you think it will take for her to lay since today marks 31days
