ADF with dropsy

I don't know if frogs count as unhealthy fish but here I am looking for help. Last night during feeding I noticed that our ADF was bigger in the stomach than normal. It also to it longer to swallow the blood worm I gave it. Almost like there was no room for food. I had a fish die earlier this month from dropsy so this is what I am suspecting it is. I am going to place it in qt today when I get home after work.

My questions are as follows: is it possible that it is a she and carrying eggs? If it is dropsy is there a cure or med I can use?

Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

Through out the day, my research has come up with very little. I haven't found anything that might actually help my frog or make it better. Should I euthanize if qt doesn't go well? And if so how do I go about this?
