Guppy pregnant for 2 months

I have 2 female guppies that seem to be pregnant for over 2 months now. Both are well rounded and very big.

29 Gal tank
3 guppies
4 Kribs
3 angels
1 BN Pleco

Anything I can do to help move them along? Water changes or lower the temp?

Guppies can hold fry if they don't feel secure dropping them.

I'd suggest putting them in a different tank/container and let them drop the fry in there.

I don't have another tank, I do have a HOB breeder box and a in tank breeder box, would that be ok to put them in?

At this point I'd try it. If you are having no luck then I would try a separate container like a Rubbermaid tub or a 5g bucket even.
