What are the general signs of a gravid scorpion? So far, I know that a gravid scorpion is significantly larger and I think it wouldn't accept food. Thanks.

Sometimes you can see the nerve cord through the intersegmental membrane:




And sometimes you can clearly see embryos through the membrane or sternites:

Here's what my 1st gravid looks like. It's a small species. Only 1.5" in length.

If you have any WC adult females, odds are pretty good that they're gravid.

The female may also kill any tank mates *not always*, as well as refuse food *this is normally the running weeks upto birth* and also be agressive to owner. any movements near the tank etc.

As well as physical signs such as the nerve cord.

female WC's are nearly always gravid.

This may sound dumb, but what does "WC" mean?
