Turtles don't become pregnant. They lay eggs. Who ever gave that answer doesnt know the fact that the female will still hold the eggs for up to 2 months before she is ready to lay them. Then after she lays them it can take up to another 3 months for them to hatch. I found this page looking for a way to tell if shes holding eggs... This was no help...... I already knew they laid eggs.
