Betta female pregnant

Yesterday my female was in a tank in my males breeding tank and she seemed really interested in him so I let her out and they got straight to it but no eggs came out. I guess I should have known it was too early because I bred her two weeks before.
Now her stomach has doubled in size and she seems even more interested in the male. Does that mean she got eggs overnight or should I wait a little longer. I don't want a big bunch of babies thought.
And when the eggs do hatch can I put them in with my other fry?
Thank you

Technically, they get gravid.

If you do not want more fry, I would just wait awhile before mating her again. It won't hurt her.
