Exclamation Possibly Eggbound Platy?

Hey there. Today, one of my female platy fish in my 10-gallon tank gave birth to 3 fry. I took a look at her to make sure she was doing alright, and I saw a flesh-colored blob hanging out underneath her. I don't know what it is, but I think it might be a deformed/stillborn fry.

I've been feeding my fish Nutrafin flakes, plus an occasional treat of brine shrimp eggs, which they haven't had in a while. Their diet hasn't changed.

I don't do much with water changes, since the water's normally quite clear. It is rather cloudy at the moment, but that may be because my filter tends to randomly shut off.

Update: the blob is no longer there, and my fish seems to be doing better, though I'm still unsure what was wrong.
