 Egg Binding?

My female leo, who has not been bred, has two eggs in the tum tum. She’s active, and eating, I noticed the eggs less than two weeks ago, but she hasn’t laid them yet.

I’ve gotten a million different responses on what to do. I provided her a lay box as soon as I noticed them. It’s a Tupperware container big enough for her to squirm around in and it’s filled with like, rain forest/dirt stuff. She has calcium available always,

She’s housed in a 20gL, shelf liner, a gazillion hides, warm side is about 93 degrees right now (just checked). She’s partially blind so she gets fed super mealies, regular mealies, and the occasional wax worm if I feel nice.

I still can’t get the photo server to work, so I can’t post pictures. But how will I know if it’s been too long and I need to take her to the vet? If she can lay them by herself, I would prefer that. As I don’t want to cause her the stress of having to go to the vet. HOWEVER, if that’s what needs to be done, I will do it. I just don’t have any experience in the whole breeding thing - so I’m a noob.

Again, she has NOT been bred. She’s active. Still eating. Still grumpy. I haven’t seen her straining or digging (and I watch her, a lot). From what I’ve read online, I shouldn’t worry until she stops eating. BUT, I’m worrying now, and I don’t want her to get hurt.

So, advice would be greatly appreciated.

Finally got the photo server to work...





The little picture in the left corner - that was when I first noticed it. The top picture is more recent.
