What are the water parameters? It could be bloat.

Small item. If she has eggs, she is gravid, not pregnant. No live babies, just lays eggs

I love these fish. I don't think they are easy to breed, but I wish you luck.

She could be gravid but as stated it will be very difficult to breed. If you succeed you can say your helping to save an endangered species.
