I would guess that she had her babies already by now if she did actually ovulate at the time you noticed the breeding. One thing you can do to check to see if she is gravid is use a temp gun and measure her body temp. IF she measures 88 degrees near where the babies would be (back 1/3 approx.) then she is gravid. If she is only somewhere between 82-85 she most likely would not be gravid. Make sure she has a heat pad underneath her tank so she can absorb the heat through her belly. I would not use a heat lamp only, If you use a heat lamp or light to help keep the hot side of the tank at about 92-93 that would be okay but I would recommend using a under tank heat pad of some kind. Rosys absorb most of their heat through their belly. Good luck with her and her babies..
