It is possible that your molly is about to give birth again. What size tank and what inhabitants are in the tank? Did you have the molly in a breeder trap when she first gave birth? My mollies always stress a lot in breeder traps so I leave them in the main tank. I have lots of plants and hiding spots as well as the other inhabitants are non-threatening fish. I have lost a few fry but not many. A lot of whether or not you want to put her in a breeder's trap will depend on what your tank is like.

If you feel that she is about to give birth again, then put her in the breeder's trap. Just watch her closely for signs of stress.
