Platys Pregnant?

Hi was wondering if these 2 platys look pregnant? I've had them for a couple months and they were thin when I got them from the store. In the past couple weeks they have gotten really big and show a gravid spot that started out red and has turned black. they seem to have a lot of the fish following close behind them lately and they will go hide in the back corner and hover or sit in the plants and even hide in the cave by themselves.

Just noticed a clear almost jelly looking thing hanging from one of the platys. Is this a possibility of birth coming soon? Before it fully came out the male nipped at it and it was gone. Should I move this one to a birthing box?

Not thinner. They are hanging around the bottom no really moving and lost a lot of colour. Just going to leave them out and let nature take its course. Don't want to stress them out in the box an if they do give birth I'll see how many I can save and just put them in the box
