Jacksonii Jacksonii giving birth to un-formed babies

We've had our Jackson Cham since Dec. We were told she was male, but after some research realized she was a gravid female. She gave birth this morning to two un-formed babies. Nothing since then. She seems very stressed. With it being a weekend, I cannot reach a reptile vet. Should I be worried about dead babies inside of her? Is there anything I can/should do for her?
She was very black this afternoon on her branch. She's in her pajamas and sleeping now.

Yep. This pic of her was 2 days ago when she was a happy girl.

She survived the night, took a small sip of water this morning and is not as dark as she was last night. I'm just going to leave her alone and give her some space today.

Kinda freaked out none of you with experience have seen this before. I'll be calling a vet tomorrow and will fill out the help form. Thanks
