Rosa surprised us with a clutch of 3 eggs 11 weeks ago. I was able to save one, and it’s in the incubator looking fertile. Today I was hooking up her heat panel because it’s supposed to be in the 50s tonight and couldn’t find her. She was behind a coleus plant laying more eggs. Total for today is 7, and she buried them much deeper than the last clutch. Time will tell if they’re fertile, but now we have 8 eggs in the incubator.

After she lays eggs is their anything we should do to help her recover? Extra fruit, soak her etc?

note that this was just when I dug them up, I did spread them out in 2 containers because I wasn’t sure if it was okay for them to be crowded like this

the coleus on the right is where she laid her eggs

You can ad foods with extra calcium if you wish. But with a proper and varied diet and access to UVB, I do not.
From the way your female looks (fantastic) I'd have no worries.
The last baby that hatched in my enclosure was from a few eggs I didn't notice. That baby thrived and survived nights well into the lower 50s. Even upper 40s.
