Keep an eye out for her poop. If it looks brown/black she is probably just gravid. Also if you have been good about feeding BN appropriate food and she is acting otherwise normal, I'd say gravid.

If she becomes lethargic and uninterested in food or pooping white to clear I'd say bloat.

Hope this helps and keep us updated!

They get a slice of vege every 2 days or so. From yellow squash, zucchini, cucumber, sweet potato and some deshelled peas here and there. She doesn't seem lethargic but I'll keep an eye out might put some more peas in tonight just in case.
