Squared?

I am still trying to figure out this whole squaring up thing in livebearers, I just don't see it. :/
I have a blue platy that is getting to her 30th day. Is she square to you?
She is very skittery and would go to the back of tank when I tried to take a picture. Most of the pics are of her blurry tail end. So I am lucky I got a couple of decent ones.

I think she is almost ready to drop fry. Get ready! The next week will tell...

Well, I hope so. Remember, livebearers do not have a predictable time when they will give birth. Patience is the name of the game.
