You will end up using possible a garbage can on it's side with a hole cut in the attached lid...or if she's still small enough for a covered kitty litter pan, then this would work, too. They don't always use the boxes we so diligently make for them. Most igs I hear of laying on everything BUT the nest.
If your ig is not yet 10" svl...then you don't have to worry yet. You will notice her sides getting bigger, eating less, possibly becoming restless and moody. The best thing to do would be to read up on it by doing a search -gravid iguana-. Anapsid.org will more than likely come up first and that site offers good information and tips on how to deal with a gravid ig...:-)

When your ig becomes gravid, one of the first things you'll notice is constant digging and scratching at everything. But, although it is always possible that an iguana can become gravid this time of year, its not very likely. Late fall and early winter are usually the critical months. When you start noticing this odd behavior, feel free to let us know and post any questions you have. I've got quite a bit of experience dealing with gravid females, so I should be able to help you out.
In addition to www.anapsid.org , you can also have a look at Jennifer Swofford's site at www.baskingspot.com/iguanas/igbook/. Much of her information came from anapsid, but its laid out in smaller sections that deal with the basic, most important details of the various aspects of iguana care.
