I also might add that if she has become restless this could be a sign. She'll start to wonder the cage and look for a place to
nest in the Aspen substrate (This is another reason I like to use aspen so much)
She'll dig out a nest and settle and wait for parturition ( birth ).
Also often the fem will release a waxy stool some 5 days or so before parturition.
If she is behaving in this manner she might be close.
Other wise she might just be really hungry.
The problem here is that its not good to feed a gravid Boa in
the last probably 4 weeks of gravidity.
This feeding can lead to complications and premature parturition.
Without an ovulation date or POS date its very hard to know.
All you can do at this point in my opinion is look and learn.
Some times you have to learn the hard way with the hard lessons.
