Hello! first post in here, kinda new to this but i’ve used this to help find stuff. My beardie Thotiana is 2 year old female, I know this now. this week she’s been tearing her tank apart, I was suspicious and did some more info. Today she was pushing a little more than usual while taking her poop, thought it might have been a prolaps, gave her a bath and it wasn’t. I have been feeling her tummy and today is the first day I can feel the eggs, as well as the first day she stopped eating I’m just scared. I’ve been reading all these horror stories and just breaking down J don’t want anything to happen to my baby what can i do to make it good for her please and thank you if people read this I want her to be oka

Give her a safe spot to dig and lay the eggs. People usually fill a rubbermaid bin (or similar) with damp play sand and organic/plain (no chemicals added) topsoil. Mix that to a consistency that will hold a tunnel structure and get a tunnel started and then give her some time in there to dig. If it's a shallow bin then you could use an upside down shoebox with one side cut out to form the top of the tunnel and let her dig down from there. If she has time in something like that it should help to give her a good spot to lay them. If you don't have that available you could build her a pile of fleece scraps or something similar. That way she can dig down into them and have a safe spot to lay the eggs.

OK good, Keep giving her time in the box and see if she starts to dig around. It may take several days and when she does start laying them it may be in batches.
