i am new to breeding geckos and this is the first time my gecko has been pregnant and she stopped eating and later layed an infertile egg. Now it looks like she has no more eggs in her but she still wont eat. she is an african fat tailed gecko and her tail is extremely thin. What should i do?

I have occasionally been able to get a fat tail started eating again by holding in gently and poking a cricket or a mealworm into its mouth (I know they generally don't eat mealworms, but the crickets are too squishy and some will take a mealworm when fed this way). If her tail was very thin before she laid the eggs and she is laying eggs because she bred with a male, this was not such a good idea. If the tail has gotten thin all of a sudden then it may make sense to have her checked by a reptile vet.
