I'm not sure what normal gravid boas act like near their due dates - but has she defecated lately, at all? I had a boa that I thought was gravid and near her due date, but instead had an intestinal abcess for the last 2 weeks that she abruptly died from.

I'm sure other breeders here can answer if her behavior is normal, but if you have a good herp vet, I'd take her in just to be safe if she appears that labored in breathing... (I wish I had done so with mine but thought her swelling and getting skinny in the front end was normal, but she was acting normal... though the vet said such an abcess is rare).

Got any pictures of her?
