It can be tank temp, stress level, first pregnancy or it can be just a fat guppy.

Probably it is because it is her first pregnancy.

1.the hold just under its anus open became more bigger or obvious.The place where eventually the fry will come out.

2.The fish will tend to hide in the area that have less fish such as cornered of the tank.

3.Always go near the filter ,aquatic plant,wood.stone or rock to get shelter for its fry.

4.Some may also not even eat before giving and during birth process.

Beware the livebearer such as swordtail may even eat or consume their young.

Try to separate the mother and fry using a breeding tank/trap.
Tips:

Feed the female with mix diet of food like food pellet,worm and supplement with green food and vitamins to get more yield or fry.

Hope my advise will help you on this matter and good luck on your breeding project.

But you should know they can delay their birth for months.

That could mean they are pregnant too because they will move less because they are carrying kids or they are stressed.

If they are not moving alot they are stressed. If they are moving slowly they are probably near giving birth but i'm not sure.
