Guppy gave birth and looks skinny.

I am no stranger to live breeders. I was expecting one of my guppies to birth any day now. This morning I discovered fry in the tank, but it was not from the guppy I expected.
The one that did birth has birthed several times. This time she looks so skinny, and her belly even seems sunk in. I just want to know if this is sometimes normal.

Right now she is still eating, but she has been birthing one batch after another.
