Does the gestation period for ovoviviparous snakes begin at conception and end when the egg is laid or does it include the incubation of the egg? I always thought it was the former.

I would of said the former to since the egg has then left the mothers body and so gestation is over.

Correct, the gestation period is from mating / conception until eggs are laid.

the time after is the incubation period.
