A favorite of mine has been pregnant now for a few months and was doing the usual heavy "breathing" that pregnant ladies do when they start to get large. For those of you who don't know what I mean it's a rhythmic movement every 10 seconds or so where the roach is pushing air out of her spiracles sort of "manually" because of the stress of the pregnancy. She had her hatch in the back open quite wide as well but recently in the past few days she has been comatose to the point that when I pick her up she makes no attempt to grab onto me with her legs. Hissers always do this but not she doesn't. Her legs are also kind of flat and bowed out to the point that she doesn't bend them when she does move so mobility is difficult. I'm really worried about her. I haven't seen behavior like this before. I tried to upload photos but no matter how much I cropped them the site is telling me they are too big.
