Can berried shrimp develop egg saddle?

FBI

I noticed one of my berried red Cherry shrimp getting agitated. This has never happened before so i abit worried.

Upon closer look, she got some egg saddle on her back despite being berried for almost 2-3 week. I don't think a female shrimp can have egg saddle on top while berried right? She is a young shrimp, first time berried.

Ps: i tried to find on Google about the fact but Google only gives me irrelevant result so i had to ask here. i might just being paranoid here because i did water changes today on all tanks, while most of the tank inhabitant not showing any weird behavior, my ember tetras did.

Yes they can be saddled while berried, First time mums can loose their first batch but yours being 2-3 weeks I suspect she just about to have her first hatch of young

Cool, i got abit worried there because i have cases where the mom died right before giving birth due to probably frequent water changes

Yeah, I'm doing that right now. I think someone told me in this forum. Which was a great help since I'm not seeing any shrimps reacted to water changes after reducing the wc amount
