Not eating

My female veiled has not been eating for about a week, I think she recently became receptive, is it normal for a receptive chameleon to stop eating?
 
Here’s a few.

Try to leave her alone/undisturbed as much as possible.
Make sure the laybin is moist enough and the substrate is something she'll like and that its deep enough.
Pray she lays them soon and isn't eggbound.
 
Hello, I’m starting to get worried about my chameleon, she hasn’t laid yet and it’s been almost 2 months since she got her orange/blue markings and became receptive

Is she lethargic? Sitting low in the cage? Sleeping during the day?

Please post photos of her egglaying bin. What substrate are you using? Is it moist enough to hold a tunnel? How deep is it?
 
She sat on the bottom of her cage 2 times for a few minutes but it was like a week apart, no she doesn’t sleep during the day, everything is normal besides the 2 times she went to the bottom, she started eating again. Her lay bin is about a foot deep with 8 inches of substrate, the substrate is soil/coco coir and it does hold a tunnel ive tested it by digging one with my hand.
