Maybe they released the fry at that time and now she might have gotten babies again.

Could have been in the middle of birthing... do you notice any tiny babies?

Also possible that the fish since they were sleeping, and they will turn pale as a protection as to not be noticed and eaten, then after awhile with the lights on they color up again.

Check water quality to make sure all is well there. If I ever have a concern, I do a 25-30% pwc. Then watch again/ test.
