I would say so but not to the squared off point.

I don't think that she is that close unless this is her first fry and then she is close. If the male is bothering her that isn't good so if chasing starts you need to separate her from the males/male to prevent her getting stressed and aborting her fry.

Ok then she might be closer than we thought. Just keep an eye on her sand make sure she doesn't get squared off and also make sure she doesn't get harassed.

Has she gotten smaller? Are you sure she didn't have them?

I would say no... I have 3 blue platy females interbreeding with a twinbar male and the first batch mostly died off but now I can see when she will have them... She gets much much bigger and if she is of light color you will see a large black spot near the poop chute.
