Default Is this normal?

okay, I have a female musk turtle that's extremely active, she's always up and about. We've never seen her bask at all, but recently at around 3.00 in the morning she's coming fully out of the water and just chilling?

Any ideas.

Is she housed with any males? And do you have a sandy nesting area if female?

Nope she's not housed with any males at all, the tank has a built in basking platform, so I don't know how to go about attaching a platform to it?

Also we've just pulled her out to see if we could see any obvious egg like bulges between her legs, but she's getting stressed so we've left her alone.
