what is this?

Hello
We have 4 peppermint shrimp that have all molted over the past month or so.

Today we noticed one has a weird sac of simething light pink on its belly. When it moves its legs it looks like the stuff is going to come out. What is this?

To update: the shrimp with the "eggs" hasnt been seen since that night. The following morning there was a shell that looked just like the molted shell that was shed 3 times before... Not sure if the two are related, but we havent seen the peppermint since that night...
