Why does she only carry a few eggs?

One of my veteran female mischlings inside my TB tank is only holding  5-6 eggs right now.  Last week she was holding a whole clutch. She has had about 4 clutches of babies in the past which have all hatched. She's about 1 1/2 years old. Why is she dropping them now. Could it be she's just getting old? Beginning to forget? :(

She's carried full clutches in the past with 100% baby survival rates. Would the saddle decrease in size the older she gets?

The same happened to my best misch. She only had maybe 8 eggs, gave birth, and disappeared shortly after. I think it was just old age. She did give me 2 crown bb and a bunch of pandas in her time so she served well lol.
