How long have you had her? What kind of housing?

Females that are going to lay eggs soon often soak excessively, and if you have an adult female, the time of year is about right (although they can nest other times too).

Injured or sick turtles also soak more, but if you do not see injury and she is behaving nomrally, she possibly has eggs. Of course if it is very hot, she may soak more also.
