Pregnant guppies confusions??

I have a few females who are fat and pregnant with a dark gravid spot then the next they are smaller but with their dark gravid spot still, then change again to an orange like pink gravid spot. I know one of my orange females would be due soon as she would of gotten pregnant about 3 weeks ago. Help please???

I need help, the few that have had babies were easy but these ones are annoying lol They stay in the 50L tank and have checked PH, Ammonia, Nitrate, salt and everything seems fine, the temp is 28 so they are happy swimming around and easting like normal.

I thought so to but I put the spotting yellow tale in breeding net for two days and then she went skinny again. I also put in my yellow one for two days as well and they stayed the same size and nothing. Will put them back in tonight to try and catch something. I added pics can you take a look Thanks for your help.

No the first one keeps chasing everyone off and it's a bit aggressive so that makes me think she's going to pop soon. The second one I'm pretty sure on different angles I can see eyes but not sure.

If you are using a box that is probably the problem. I don't use one they cause problhems and are not necessary. And well fed guppies dont cannabilize fry. Just give the females a place to hidea
