Exclamation Help! Very pregnant platy

OK so i bought a platy a few weeks ago thinking she was a male. Well guess what. Now i have a platy that looks like shes about to blowup and have no clue what to do. I have moved her to a smaller tank with a decoration from her original tank and some tank water. I already had one pregnant female die and don't know what to do. Here is a pic that looks like her. HELP!

I'm not entirely sure thats pregnant. You may have bloat. Wait for others to chime in. Are the scales sticking out at all?

What are you feeding? water parameters?

Feed well cooked insides of peas (mashed up, avoid the "skin" around the pea)

hopefully it takes some.

If its not that, it may be dropsy.
