Is My Female Swordtail Pregnant?

I just really noticed a darker spot on her and she is kind of fat. You don't really notice until you look at her from underneath when she's swimming. What do you guys think? Is she pregnant and if so, can you guess how far along so I can prepare for fry? Thanks so much!

I got a good one of her the other day, but today I tried some more and she doesn't quit moving and I had the lights out. She has either been hiding or swimming up and down a lot.

She looks to have a good sized gravid spot going, and a rounding belly. She does not look ready quite yet, when her chest squares off she will drop within a few days.

Thank you so much! I will keep an eye on her. I'd like to save the fry. I'm sure they will be beautiful as she is a gorgeous fish.
