As Byron said, they don't seem to grow much more. I have noticed that the babies seem to move up and down her length.
One day it looks like she is about to pop them out any minute, and the next day they have moved up to midway in her body.

These pics were taken on 09 October 2011.

The length covered by babies has definitely increased a bit over the past month or so.

I only noticed now when comparing the first pics with these, how the pattern on her sides, not the floral pattern on her back, has stretched more and more out of shape.

Good luck buddy, you deserve a nice big clutch of healthy babies.
And God has Created every animal from water, of them are some creeping on their bellies, some walk on two legs, and some on four. God Creates what He wills, for sure God has Power over all things. (Noble Quran 24:45)

Certainly looks like she will burst!

Thanks Byron

I'm getting a little bit impatient now and so is she, she keeps wreckingthe newspaper in the cage over the past few days.

I decided that it is time for an updated pic or two.

I reckon I can fairly safely say that she is definitely Gravid with about two months of gestation still to go.

Yeah she looks kinda chubby. You are probably right about her dropping lots of babies.

It looks like bumbs indicating the presence of little ones.

I am hoping for mid January, the problem is that I did not record sheds etc., so I am guessing here.
Sorry.
