    She looks quite bloated, if she is shuddering she may have an internal bacterial infection, I would skip feeding her today if you havent already, but youre right, shes not squared or ready to give birth yet.

    If you want, you can try adding 1 capful of hydrogen peroxide per gallon to work as an anti bacterial agent that is very light and mild, if she doesn't improve within a day or two amd you are really worried, then I would suggest picking up methylene blue and doing light baths for her using tank water and 5-10 drops per gallon, for 10 minutes a day, you could do it twice a day if you want.
