pregnant dal molly

So we've got a molly that is refusing to give birth. She's looked this big for probably at least 2-3 months. Is there anything I can do to encourage her? Should I be worried? I know they can hold sperm for 6 months.

She's not a balloon molly, and I'm 100% sure she's a female.

Ok, she definitely looks preggers! Lol has she been squared out for the 3 months? You can trigger her birth by doing a waterchange.

She's been that square for probably at least 2 months, if not more. I did a wc yesterday. Should I start doing wcs everyday? I usually do them about 2 times a week.
