Why won't my balloon molly drop?

My balloon molly has been squared for about 3-4 days, and she just won't drop. She's in her own tank except a floating breeder with 7 fry in it. Cycled tank. Why do you think she won't drop?

Half the time she's active, half the them she stays by the heater. She looks like she's so big she's gonna pop.

It could be she's just waiting for the right moment they usually give birth at night though , also I added 1 teaspoon of aquarium salt to my 10 gallon and a few days later she gave birth so salt can help her give birth
