This is my first time breeding, and as far as I know, my 9', 43lb female argentine is gravid by my male albino. My Albino male was breeding her nonstop from late october-january. (with breaks inbetween determined by me)

She ovulated January 18, and swelled up worse than I ever could have imagined. Looked like she swallowed a horse, automobile, a few pigs, and a frog. That was 2 months ago. The ovulation swelling went down, and now she appears normal. her basking habits are everything you'd expect from a gravid female, no eating, rather snippy at times.

How long should it be before I start to see her swelling up with babies? Or since she is not yet, should I expect slugs?
