Yes, I think this is a respiratory infection. I do not know what caused it, but the environmental parameters you mentioned sound okay. I suggest a vet visit soon. Being gravid, your choice in antibiotics might get complicated. Let your vet know that it may be gravid.

As an aside, if there are no obvious reasons for your snake to be sick, then you might consider that it is immunocompromised for another reason. If this is a virus, like IBD or paramyxovirus for example, than breeding and selling offspring have huge ethical concerns. Because of this, I might suggest further diagnostics like bloodwork and lungwash/culture to hopefully find out exactly what caused the problem and/or rule out something bigger.

I hope this helps, and good luck!

Ian
