Resorbing Eggs

A few weeks ago I had found (and saw a few come out of my goldie) some eggs in my tank. She never ended up releasing a bunch of eggs at once. The past several days her poo has had lots of air bubbles in it. Is she resorbing eggs? If so, how long does this take (days, weeks)? Or could it be something else such as constipation?

She acts fine and looks good otherwise . . .

Thanks!

Reabsorbed eggs are more hard like jelly and make the poop zigzag like this:

If the bubbles are air pockets then its usually just gas, maybe a change of food for a few days? .. egg bubbles tend to be larger and heavier making the poop bend at sharp angles. Neither are worrying if the fish is behaving fine.

From what I remember that's pretty much what it looked like. They weren't just small little air bubbles but long like that with white between it. I'll watch for it again and change up her food. She loves peas so I'm sure she wouldn't mind!

Thanks for the pic of it. That helps.
