All of my kids guppies look like this after they eat. How do you know for certain they're pregnant? I've googled pictures and I just don't get it yet. (Had one of four drop fry and can't tell the difference... lol)

If their belly is that way all the time, and it has an almost boxed shape.

...also the gravid spot, or the dark spot near the anal fin usually darkens...and it looks like she is pretty dark. I would agree with the above that you should have wigglers anytime.

It takes some patience but keep looking at her her until you get a good view straight on from the back. If the gravid spot looks totally square - then she's just about there.

This is helpful... thank you. I thought I was looking for a square shape from the side view... that's why I wasn't getting it. Now I get it.... lol.

Have a close look through a magnifying glass if you can - you will see the eyes of the babies inside the female when she is almost ready to drop.

I have tried this, but am never sure if what I can see is eyes or eggs

At the late stage of pregnancy, it will be eyes

You can be more accurate next time, as she will have another drop around 4 weeks after this one
