gmpyro:
You do not impart near enough information in order to even produce an educated guess. But you may in the best position to answer that question if you had another female produce a litter last year. When did she produce her litter and do you have your current female under the same gestation conditions as the female last year?

As for your female boa not feeding at the present time and you mention she has been gaining weight, under such circumstances, the only way that can happen is by the boa's intake of water. Over the length of the entire gestation period, the boa will eventually loose weight if she is fasting during that period of time.
