Is my snake gravid?

Hi everyone! My 5 y/o ultramel tessera was paired about 1 1/2 month ago. I donít brumate as my temps donít get cold enough here. However, she is looking very round.. almost overnight. When I feel her she doesnít feel lumpy, but just full overall in the lower third. Attached are pics of her taken today, sheís usually a very slender girl naturally. She shed on saturday, I have offered her a hide with sphagnum moss and she loves it. Maybe that is her pre lay shed? Sheís just been acting very restless as well. You can also see the scale spread in attached photos

The shape of her body plus the way her body contacts your hand. Plus you mentioned when they were paired and how she has been acting which is right on par.

If you think "maybe", it would be best to treat her like she is rather than treat her like she isn't.
