She does look like full of fry. My best estimate would be you could have fry within the nest few days, but it is really hard to know.

I would separate her from other fish and put her in a breeder trap box

As a note, if you put her in a breeding box/net, only leave her in there for a day or 2 at the most. They need to be able to swim around to stay healthy and to start pushing the fry out. The boxes can be quite stressful for them, so don't leave her in there for very long.

I agree. Put her in there. Just watch her and take her out if she seems too stressed or if too much time passes.
