Platy acting real strange

I thought my platy was pregnant but it's Been over 6 weeks and no fry. Today I found her at the bottom of the tank, and a clamped fin. Water perimeters are all normal.

7.4 PH
0 ammonia
0 nitrate
0 nitrate

Yesterday. My thermometer broke so I did a complete WC and changed the gravel to sand. All the other fish are having a blast!

Can she be about to give birth?Click image for larger version

Probably. I have livebearers also and when they are about to give birth, they like to hide on the bottom somewhere.
