I would say within 1-4 days. Sorry I know thats not at all helpful. Your best bet is to look at the stomach from the rear if it is reddish orange it's just the eggs. They will get darker and darker until a very dark grey or blackish then they are within 3-5 days. When the dark grey/black becomes silvery then its go time and you are within about 48 hours. So from this angle you are very close but I can't be sure. Good Luck!
