Question about female ratsnakes...

I have a bit of a situation here that has me more than a little bit concerned. I was hoping that those of you with more experience might be able to shed a little bit of light on my problem. I have a female Corn that was eating like a champ up until February 12th. She went into a shed cycle and completed it with no problems. Immediately following this shed cycle I introduced my male to see if he was interested. They have since bred 6 times that I know of. Since those breeding attempts every time I go to offer her a mouse she refuses, wants absolutely nothing to do with. Could this be a sign that she is gravid? Could this be a sign that she was stressed by the breeding attempts? Could both be going on? Is this normal behavior?

Please help me out on this one!!
