poorly platy

My normally active platy started looking a bit sorry for herself last week.Fins clamped floating inactive near the top etc. She then gave birth but has remained fat and looks bloated. Could this be constipation or something else? What can I do? she is still eating but will not move unessasarily. All other tank mates fine and all perameters fine.

Are the scales sticking out or are they flush with the body? Is the stomach a normal color?

The scales are for the most part lying flat.But at the largest point of the enlarged area some are standing up.The strange shape is not uniform and seems to be more pronounced on the right side. She is still eating and will swim about to feed but mostly is staying hidden and at rest seems to be tipping forward, hanging almost upside down.
