Powerfeeding Gravid Girls

Do you guys continue feeding your' gravid girls on a regular schedule? Or do you feed them as much as possible? I'm curious if you can power feed to get a sack faster, or if that idea is bad, or if it doesn't really matter.

I'm not sure if any of mine are gravid yet, but I'll be keeping them on a regular schedule. One of my females was pretty robust before mating and doesnt eat very much of anything right now. The other Female could use a few extra meals. For her I will continuously offer her food until she doesn't want anymore. Then put her on a every other day food offering.

I know there is a lot of other things to factor in, like if she starts webbing up the place and she starts getting closer to dropping a sac, I'd cut back with the food and just make sure there is plenty of water. Then again by that time hopefully they are too fat to want to eat. Good read though, I'd love to see what everyone else thinks. cheers
