Pregnant swordtails?

I have a couple of swordtails I have been trying to breed. Are these guys preggers?

Hey, it can be hard to tell from photo's sometimes but i would say that they defo look pregnant. The bottom one(very nice colouring) looks very pregnant. It can also be quite difficult to estimate when there due as some can be massive and other can barely look pregnant. The top one i'm not sure, maybe 7-10days left and the other maybe 7days or less. Maybe others could give you a more accurate 'date' but as i said it can be hard to tell from a pic..When they do drop, write down or remember the date and simply add 4wks and you'll have there next due date!!!....Ian
