Awesome Mark! Thanks for the weight picture, it’s great to see what a healthy hatchling starts out around.
This was my youngest and smallest female's first clutch. The eggs averaged 22.6 g. The larger females lay quite a bit larger eggs. Their eggs average 31 g. I will post some of those with weights when they hatch in a few more weeks.

With the G platynota, The size of the females doesn't affect clutch size. It is the size of the eggs that increase with larger females.
