Painted Platy is Pregnant

My platy is pregnant and I hope she has lots of fry. What are signs that show they are close to giving birth.

She will get almost square looking instead of round at the back. She will look for quiet place to hide. Good luck with the fry.

You probably have a week left. Instead of being round like this U she will be squared off like this \_/. Ill get a pic of a squared off one for examples.

The males will harass the females in hope of her dropping the clutch either on time or prematurely for a free meal.
