how can i tell if my guppy is pregnant? when will she have her fry?

I have a female guppy and she looks a little fatter. But I don't know if she is pregnant, or bloated, or what. She has been with a male for a while. So she could easily be pregnant. Also, how long after becoming pregnant will she have her fry?

If she's been with a male for a while more than likely she's pregnant. If you look at her gravid spot it should be getting bigger. Guppies give birth 21-30 days after getting pregnant.

I am uploading a video of her to youtube so I can post a link. I couldn't get any good pics. She is the one with the plain yellow tail. I tried to get some footage of her gravid spot...
She was with a male for two hours about a week ago, then I separate them again. Then I put the yellow cobra male in there with the three females in the video. He has been since this morning.

Thanks. She is kinda big... are the females normally kind of grumpy (I am not trying to be sexist here) when they are pregnant? She is chasing the other females away... if you are wrong, it doesn't matter, because there is a male in there, so there will definitely be babies soon.
