I haven’t read ever post but if your worried about your cham I would recommend the X-ray as well. The vet will be able to tell to the estimate amount of eggs and if the eggs are ready they start to line up in the oval duct that can be seen in the X-ray. Also if the eggs are oval shaped in the X-ray that means they are ready to to lay.

I have a female with reproductive problems so I’ve also had a hard go with her and know the struggle.

The vet I would trust with her is a 2 and a half hour drive. The temps and weather havent been the greatest as of late.

She started showing her receptive colours on December 27th.
By the first of January she was acting crazy.
She only recently stopped pacing and started eating again. Back to her normal easy going self
I've read it can take 3 months from the beginning of the receptive stage.
But I don't know how accurate that info is.
She will be 7 months old on Feb 24th

Has she been going to the bottom at all and is she scratching the screen cage like she wants to get out? Those are usually the signs my girl will give when she’s ready to lay her gets

my vet is a hour from me so I understand it not being easy at time

She the first few weeks after her colours started she was crazy. Climbing the screen. Climbing down.
Between her planters. She was all over.
She barely ate for that month.
Shes been very chill the last week and a half.
Appetite has returned and all pacing has stopped. She still moves around from spot to spot during the day. But hasnt been showing any interest in her lay bin

Sounds like she was looking for a mate back then and now she should be close to laying. I don’t think you need to worry yet but I know that’s easier said then done and I should tell myself that when my female is going crazy lol

I read as much as I could before she was gravid.. i understand all the basics.
for some reason expected her to be more stoic through the whole thing. 😆
She proved me wrong.
