So I would be extra cautious since you have no idea how many eggs she laid prior and if there were any issues.

Make sure her bin can hold a tunnel.
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.

I err on the side of caution, so wouldn’t delay if she were mine. From the looks of her, she is carrying lots of eggs and she may not be able to pass them. Often chams don’t show any signs that anything is wrong until it’s very late and then their prognosis is poor.
Ok

she is getting the powder with D3 daily and without D3 twice
Wait a minute.... You are giving D3 daily? Please tell me if you meant to say this. Can you take a pic of the supplements your using? Eyes closing does not only mean vitamin A issues. She has other stuff going on. And the fact that she is so heavy with eggs and went off food with the eyes closing screams other issues.
