def bloat, gravid females often display a pinkish or yellowish hue around the belly and the swelling is usually lower down.

Get her on the peas ASAP!

def after support previous advice.. looks like bloat to me too...

I have had gravid females but not that big either...

as far as how long the female could have been like it, I am not sure... may be one of the others who have
experience with it more may be able to give you better advice Smile
