When will my platy give birth?

I think my Platy is going to give birth soon. I've had her since the 10th, and she has certainly gotten larger. When will she give birth? Here are some pics:

She will get squarer in the stomach as she gets closer to giving birth and it usually takes about 30days from once they are preggers to give birth. Hope most the fry live and don't get eaten !!

Like Fishie said, they get much more square when they are about to pop. It almost looks like there is something wrong with them to me because they get so big lol. When she is about to give birth after squaring off she will also most likely start hiding from other fish in the tank or chasing them away. alternately she might spend some time at the top of the water kind of doing what I call "fish panting" when it's time to go into labor.
