am I going to be a grandma or not???

Ok guys, I have two leo's who I just brought out of hibernation last week, and my female is either fat or gravid, these are the only lizards I have and I've only had them for a year, I really don't have much experiance with lizards.

are there tell-tale signs that she is pregnant? She does have a vien that is rather visable on her tummy which wasn't nearly as easy to see before hibernation.

any other general info would be quite welcome, I'll post pics when I have them

I hope you guys aren't sick of these "newbie" questions, sorry if you are, I guess I just trust you guys a little more than all the random info on the net...

thanks in advance

It's nice to see more people getting into leos. There are a couple of ways to tell if your leo is pregnant or not. If the gecko starts getting fat and bulky and gets a lumpy looking stomach then it may be pregnant. After you notice the gecko getting fatter, put her in a clear bottomed container and look at her belly. If eggs are developing 2 white lumps (the eggs) should be seen through the gecko's underbelly. If you think that she is pregnant make sure to get the geckos some extra calcium suppliment to help in egg development.

Hope that helps.
