Is my Platy Pregnant?

Got this Platy about 3 weeks ago in a tank of all males besides her. Seems like her belly has gotten bigger. I Have never owned Platy's before so I am not sure. Would love some opinions!

Separating her is your choice! It looks to me as if you have plants and tons of spaces for fry to hide... I separated mine because quite a few died off a while ago during level spikes.. So I want to save every fry I can :-p but if kept with others.. Make sure there's no predator that can just suck them up! The fry are really small

Yes I wouldn't separate her at this stage. You can If you want but like someone's said, you have tons of plants.
