What do you mean by obstruction? Is there a cork stuck up her operculum? scratch

If she is living and eating normally they dont worry...unless the operculum is blocked like mike said then yes...it could be a problem

when gravid the whole body becomes huge and not just the end part of the body. and it all seems to expand at one and not a bit at a time....

My guess is that something internal is wrong, and that she's not gravid.

I don't know if it's an infection, an impaction, or what.
