Is this Mollie pregnant?

I just noticed my white Mollie is looking quite fat. Im not even sure if its a girl or boy.... Is it pregnant or just fat?!

I've had them forever, so It would be weird for it to just now be pregnant.

Help please!!

OK, from the photos I can not sex it. Close up side view please. I'm not sure if this is a ballon molly, if not it looks like trouble. Basically my advice is look at it from the top down. If scales are protruding it is Dropsey and the fish needs to go. If not it is ready to give birth.

Yes, it is a balloon Molly. I know they're bellies are bigger than regular mollies, but my other balloons aren't near that big.
