Did she square off yet?

If you look at her head or tail on does she look boxy

She will look round at the biggining and mid pregnancy then she will get square or cube like before she drops usually

Ok, the problem is I just got her today, and this is my first guppy. So I don't really know what they look like when they aren't pregnant

I know these are horrible pictures, but it's the best I can do. This fish won't sit still!

Yes she is pregnant

You can't predict how long it will take, I used to breed them and I found it took a month to 4-5 months if they were under stress.
Just keep her healthy happy and safe and she will drop the fry in no time.

You can tell they are pregnant by the dark gravid spot by the pectoral fin it's pretty clear in your first pic but time line is anyone's guess you can't wait now but talk to me in a few months when you have guppies galore lol
