Is this normal ?

So my female veiled chameleon has been sitting under her heat lamp for about 2 days straight and hasn't moved at all she only moves her head slightly when we feed her . Normally when we spray her with water She runs away but now we have been spraying her she doesn't move . She has been looking quite fat lately but We have no idea how old she is but we r thinking she could be laying her fist lot of eggs but we aren't sure , could this be an option? Also we do have the soil stuff in her viv in the corner already just incase she is laying her eggs
Please say something and help me out
Thank u

What exactly do you mean by "soil stuff" in the "corner"? What is its composition? What is the depth? Width?

Females require dedicated laybins and "soil in the corner" does not sound like what she needs
