She absolutely looks eggbound, I suggest getting her to a veterinarian asap as it has already been several days with no progress. Did you give her a lay box?

I turned her tub into a big lay box, thinking the one i had was too small,

So the problem with that is they want to feel secure when they lay and will usually seek out a small, dark place. Did you at least have a hide in the tub? If not, you absolutely need one. Also, just to get a better idea of your girl, how old is she and how much did she weigh before breeding?

You can try to get things moving by giving her a soak in some 85ºF water, make sure she can still touch the bottom surface. If you do this in a big enough tub, she will be able to sort of swim around. You might also try offering her a meal if she’ll take it. That said, if she laid that first egg on the 24-25th, she absolutely should see a vet.
