How long has she been pregnant? It takes about 30 days from the start of the pregnancy til they give birth ( or at least that's what I've read).
My female is getting pretty big too but it's only been a couple of weeks.

Hello King...

Livebearing females can delay dropping the fry until they feel water conditions are right for the fry's survival. To encourage the female, do a bit larger than normal water change and make the water slightly warmer than normal. I would add a teaspoon of standard aqaurium salt to every five gallons of replacement water. The combination of pure water conditions and a little salt to help ease the stress on the female should encourage her to drop the fry.
