Their bellies will square off when they are about to deliver


As far as delivering.... You will see little balls coming out around it's anal area. They will unfurl themselves and become swimming fry in a matter of seconds

How long ago did she have them? More could still be coming. And how many?

AS angel said they will "square" off they will also develop a very dark spot on their bodies. This is refered to as Gravid it's actually the eyes of the baby fry inside of them.

I've had guppies in one way, shape, or form since I was a kid. I've seen females give birth to a dozen and call it quits, I've seen other females give birth to 30+ over a day or so.

Keep an eye on her and if you really want to see something dim/turn off the lights in the tank leaving your room lights on, if you're lucky you'll see a baby drop and start swimming before it hits the bottom.... Love seeing live births

One thing to remember is that guppies can stay fertilized for a while after contact with last male.
