    Could be, has she laid down a carpet of silk when doing the turning in circles? They after do that in order to flip on their back. I am assuming you have not changed anything in the tank and the substrate is clean and free from mould, mites etc. It may be worth posting wider on the forum along with pictures if you have any.

    She has not laid down the mat of silk yet, but I do notice the color of her carpace and legs are getting more pale and her abdomen is darkening. Yes, her terrarium is free of any foreign bacteria and or debris, I clean her water dish and fill it regularly. Thank you so kindly again for your advice, Phil. Love that profile pic of your T, is she a white knee?
