Default Snake Trembling- Palpitations Please Help!

Ok so my Leucistic ratsnake has just laid infertile egss which she has twice before she just finished laying the last of the slugs/eggs last night, I gave her a warm bath last night and it looked like a last bit of egg or calcium came out like a short thick waxy candlewick, she is now sitiing in her viv and looking like she has hiccups or something, The movement isnt from the mouth its kinda mid way along the body, you know sometimes they get exicted when they mate and they tend to shrug or their bodies make a shuddering movement sometimes, its more like that. She has never had this before and I am really really worried....Being Sunday I cant take her to the vets can anyone please explain if they have had this before? really not sure what to do....

as I have had and am still dealing with my first egg bound Burmese python your story is something like mine. my female laid 10 eggs then stopped a day later passed another egg and then nothing for a week or so. started to drop some more 1 at a time at first and then the last time she dropped another egg it was two. during this time she has being sitting under the heater and twitching as a female would if sitting on eggs. she is a python and rat snakes don't incubate their own egg so that's where we differ. I would sit it out for a few days just to make sure she has passed all eggs then give the viv/rub a good clean down and once back in the viv try feeding her.
