Hi everyone,

Thanks in advance..

Yes your mollies are pregnant. They should give birth in about a month and here's a pic of my guppy ( guppies and mollies are very close to the same thing ) at about a week and a half pregnant

You can see how her bellie is kinda sticking out and on her other side near her anal fin her gravid spot is almost black. Here is my other guppy who is very pregnant she probably only has a few days

It's hard to tell with balloons, but they will get very, very fat. I had a lot of stillborns when mine had babies unfortunately, so just a warning there. May be they're shape.
