Hi think my new platy could be pregnant, i bought 2 a fortnight ago and one has already given birth but even though she was in a nesting trap they escaped and have only seen one since. The second one looks heavily pregnant and is in the nesting trap but im not sure how far on she is.... Help please

I've had females act differently... I've had them hang by the heater... Do a tipsy thing suddenly as they swim... Hang near the bottom... Swim frantically..
