No. One can only make one niyah during a fast. It is because of the principle that the description of the fast cannot be separated from the original fast niyah itself (Bahr Ra-iq). So someone cannot fast a niyah and then add on it. So she can only fast qaza at one time. Then some other days, she may fast nafil. Wallahou A’lam.
