Did it molt recently?

Spider’s abdomen cannot be shrunk as far I as know unless it molts.

How long has she been mature, and are you sure it's not an MM?
I'm positive she's not a MM because I just found her eggsac haha, turns out she thinned up because she dropped an egg. Thank you for the help everyone don't know what I'm gonna do with all these slings

There is an orb weaver around here that at first I thought had a triangular abdomen. Turned out the abdomen is normally ovate except when preggo which they very often are.
