behavior changes?

I have a very pregnant squared off swordtail. Today I noticed she is hanging out on the bottom of the tank in the plants. Does than mean she is getting ready to have her babies? Normally she stays toward the top of the tank.

Yes, this is what my female guppies tend to do when dropping, or if they just wanna get away from the males...

I just set her up in a small plastic tank next the big tank and hopefully by morning she will have had her babies so I can go ahead and put her back in the big tank. Hopefully she will be good in there it isn't very big maybe about a gallon? I added some gravel an airstone and some plants. I am hoping to keep as many fry as possible alive since I just lost their father a few days ago.
