The only gravid pics I have are the two on my site:

The eggs are very obvious in this pic. I think she was a few days away from laying.

This pic shows the female at about 10 days before laying. She looks sort of ragged because this was late in the season and she had already popped out a few clutches.

And of course, the first pic in the series on this thread is a gravid female ;)

I try not to snap pics or handle the spiders when gravid because it takes them a long time to settle down before they lay. If I bug them, they wait before laying and I've had one female look like she was about to explode because of how long she waited.
