Gourami Pregnant or bloated?

I have a powder blue gourami that I have had since January. I have a 55 gallon tank that finished cycling in January. Ammonia and Nitrites are 0,Nitrates are 5ppm, pH is 7.4 and Temp is 78.1. There are 8 other gourami in the tank none of which are showing the same condition. The "green" in the water is the tannins from the driftwood. Click image for larger version

I can't quite tell from the angle, it seems large for sure. I would try feeding blanched peas, the center hearts not the shell. If she has eggs, a male will wrap around her to get the eggs out and fertilized. Otherwise she could be bloated.

I fed the peas yesterday afternoon. I'll give it a little to see if there is a change. I have not fed the tank regular food in about 24 hours. Should I feed peas again, and if so how long between the feedings? This is my first "real" tank, with "real" issues. Thanks in advance.

Looks to be carrying eggs .
I don't see anything else suspicious with her.
