How Long til Platy Birth?

This is Cookie

Got this girl about 10 days ago...

How long till she gives birth? Any guesses? I've had a platy give birth with a smaller belly than that, but also bigger...
Sorry for poor quality pics... She gets excited when I go to the tank and goes all over.

What do you guys think?

She doesn't look pregnant at all, to be honest. ^^

Hmm... She was with males in the tank and has gotten rounder and more solid looking since I got her...

With her you will definitely see little black eyes staring at you in her belly. That'll be your definate sign. She may be early in preggos but not far along

Cookie is even bigger! Solid black inside has moved closer to her vent... She's flexing her tail a bit... Close!

Following. I have a male an female hi fin variatus and I have no live bearer experience. I imagine she will end up having babies at some point. How all goes well!

I have found 6 in the gravel so far... There may be a couple still hiding well, but the other fish have been hunting around well... Mom is moved to her own 10g... She still has a bit of black inside... Will see by tonight if she has any more in there...
After she's finished I'll out her back in the 20g.

Babies are alternating between swimming and laying on the bottom... Strong babies from Cookie

I'm sorry for the mistake! I will go there. I've read so many posts I got confused.

I had a guppy that gave birth to 16-20 baby fry in a well planted tank.... But some say even more.

Too cute! At least they are relatively easy to catch compared to my month old ones

Oh that's right you have gravel, all those cracks and crevices. How is Cookie holding up?
