Fry hanging out of platy?

So this morning I woke up and realized one of my pregnant platy fish doesn't seem pregnant anymore, but she didn't seem to be far enough into a pregnancy to give birth? She wasn't squared, no mood change, etc. Well now it looks like there's a fry hanging out by her anal fin. It just looks like a frys body but it's not coming out. It's not poop. Does anyone know what this is? Is this common after births? Is it a platy fry?

I figured it out lol! It was a fry. Apparently she wasn't done delivering and I found a bunch more hiding in my plants
