Pregnant Platy...gone to abortion?

My platy got alot skinnier all of a sudden, and I see no babies...

I'm not sure if she's pregnant anymore, or if she just ate her babies.

I can still sort of see her gravid spot, but she's alot skinnier than she was a few days ago

She could have had them and then she could just be dropping the extra waste while getting ready to have them. And yes, sometimes, if conditions are bad enough or they are stressed enough they will abort a delivery.
