New Owner, Have Questions, Help Plz.

I was gifted a wonderful African Sideneck Turtle. I had no idea how to check gender (have since figured it out). I felt that Terri was pretty lonely in a 75 gallon tank and purchased a friend. Terri & Kahaila hit it off VERY well. They were very very busy turtles for about 2 days. I was not prepared for such a friendly encounter, and now am at a loss for what to expect & do. How long will Kahaila carry her eggs before she needs to lay them? We are currently in the process of building her an attached nesting box, but need an idea as to how much time we have. My husband has been researching all the requirements for a safe and healthy egg laying environment. I am aware of the lay - hatch time. But cannot find any information on acceptable gravid time-frames. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank You.
