Pearl Gouramis

Hello everyone,
I have a couple questions about my Pearl Gourami;
Is this a male or female ?
Is she carrying eggs? (my speculations) Or is he/she bloated or other ??
If pregnant ....
Why isnít either my male gourami nor the female making a bubble nest ?

Background info ;
This gourami did not blow up over night, it was over the course of weeks..
They seemed to show mating signs previous to the belly.
They are both now in my breeding tank (Day1) because the fish in my community tank were bullying them.
I have placed floating plants and artificial plants at the bottom for her to hide just Incase she is carrying.
Anywayyyy please help

Here is a comparison of Male and female gouramis. https://imgur.com/a/tIb8wGb
Male fins will be pointed and female will be rounded. Also if you tried to link a photo I recommend using a third party site like imgur.com then providing the link to it.
