It's possible but from the pics I don't think she is.

If you can see a dark patch behind the light part of her belly, then she is pregnant.

It looks to me like she is

Yeah she has a dark patch behind her belly. Any idea how long it takes for a swordtail to give birth?

It takes about a month for baby platies to be born, so probably the same.

It will probably also take a further 2 months after that to get them to an uneatable-by-parents size.

Good luck
