Sick looking Platy and sick/prego Platy?

Hello,

I saved these bunch of platys maybe two months ago, and am successfully raising 25 fry of the first one's pregnancy. The females were pretty much all pregnant when I got them. I am still setting up my hospital tank but one of my Platy is looking really sick and I thought my other was just pregnant but I am not so sure. She has been hiding a lot which made me think she was about to give birth but that has been going on for the last 4 days. The marigold male is always gasping for air and is moving really slowly. The pregnant wagtail is gasping but sometimes stop moving entirely which scared me so I opened the top and she swam around. Any ideas?Click image for larger version

Test your water.

If I see signs of anything going wrong with my fish I automatically do a large water change with Prime.

I tested yesterday and all the parameters were fine. All my other platys look fine. And I have the answer for my redwag. I found a couple new fry so she just took her time .
