She sure looks it!
Very squared off even , which would indicate fry should be soon.
I have a platy that was trans shipped directly from Asia that remains very large even after birthing fry.
Have you seen any fry ever in that tank?
It looks like you have several mollies.

Lets some more plants float at the surface for cover .
I would guess they are eating the fry.
Keeping the parents well fed can help sometimes.

Who else is with the mollies, and what size is the tank?
Fry can also easily get sucked into the filter if it is not protected with a sponge.

Java moss or even fake plants will provide good cover also.
You should see some fry or they are being eaten/sucked up by filter..
I run air driven sponge filters in my breeding/fry tanks.

You should see some fry eventually. They are pretty small so they will not be easy to see ,especially if they go to the gravel .
