Question Big Mama-full of eggs...Why?!!!

Well.. One of my female HMs (Marie) has a HUGE belly full of eggs.. But I have no idea why..or how to help her drop them(never had this problem).. I bought her from a breeder about a week ago..and when she was shipped she came with that belly of eggs. I emailed the breeder about conditioning and they said they never started a conditioning process on her(very trustworthy)..and I havent either..so I dont know what to do.. I have heard about females actually dying because of a huge belly of eggs and them not being able to drop them.. so Im using caution and keeping an eye on her. But I need some pointers.

She is eating properly..Swimming properly..and is very active in her sorority group..all in all she is in fantastic health!

here are some pics.

She appears more constipated than full of eggs to me, but that is just my opinion.

Haha. I might breed her.. She does carry the marble gene, which I love! But I don't have a male HM that carries that gene..
And I was really wanting to start a line of HMPK dragons. I have a fantastic male HMPK yellow dragon.. so I'm scanning aquabid for a female that carries the gene... No luck so far.
