Still sounds like signs of overwatering - yellowing leaves usually indicate root stress. Try watering completely and then allowing the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. You don't want the plant to wilt between waterings but you do want the soil to dry out a little. Overly wet soils can actually suffocate the roots so watering is important. I hope your Dombeya recovers soon!
