Egg Bound?

Hello all,
I have my first gravid female and I am a little bit worried. About a week ago, she started digging in her lay box and not eating and pretty much laying around. These all seeemed to be good signs. Then she spent all of last Thursday night in the nesting box and I figured I would have eggs in the morning. I did not and she has been very restless ever since, but has stopped digging and I can still see bulges of eggs in her abdomen when she is against the glass. These bulges are very obvious, and when I felt her I could feel the eggs. Is this normal behavior, or is she possibly egg bound? If she is egg bound, what should I do? I got her for free and have only had her about two months. Sorry for the long post and I appreciate any help.

Thanks,
Eric
