The female will get very big and kinda squared off when she is really close to giving birth. Also the dark spot on her behind will get really dark. If she is the only female the male will never leaved her alone and stress her really bad.

Do you have a breeder tank? If so put her in there, you'll have more chance of saving the fry as well, these are my 2 guppies that are close to having fry and are in breeder tanks now
