What were your water parameters and what filtration are you running and everything. Did you change anything during that time?

Did you actually test your water or are you one of those people who look at the water and say the ph is fine? It can look fine but be horribly wrong. Get a test kit so people have actual info needed to help you. Stating the ph good and the water is clear does not help anyone help you.

Your lfs, wherever you got the fish you can pick up a test kit. Should be less than 5 bucks. Your fish will thank you.

Also what are the chances that the guppy wasn't prego? Maybe it had a disease causing it to look prego.

I would recommend the api freshwater liquid master test kit due to the fact test strips are inaccurate most of the time most of us on here use and trust the api kit

Get the liquid kits test strips are totally inaccurate! Do not get them and. If anyone has then throw them out and go buy the liquid ones! They are more then 5 dollars by the way you should get a mini master kit at the least! It should have ph, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.
