Pregnant platys?

Do my sunburst wag and my red mickey mouse platys look pregnant? I have had three females with one male for about 2-3 weeks. If they are pregnant then im guessing it will be soon. Thanks!

To me it looks like a good possibility that they are but I could be wrong, do you notice a gravid spot?

It will be harder to see considering that your fish are darker in color. I'd say just wait it out and see if she gets larger and so does the spot.

Does the sunburst wag look squared? I can see a gravid spot. She looks slightly squared to me
