I wouldn't worry about that too much. If they are already bidding they should give birth very soon so I wouldn't wait. It would decently help save your babies.

Is she still eating or eating and spitting it straight back??. I found this to be one of the signs, amongest others..Did you put her in the breeder box yet. If not your cutting it really, REALLY fine!!..I fully agree with Creic38. In the box, lights and airstone off, leave the tank alone and wait
There's an old saying;
" A Watched Kettle Never Boils"...

Only the last hour the fish with the smaller body looks different... Is this squaring off?

She's still eating, still hanging out with other fish and stufgf so I haven't moved her over. I don't want to move her too soon because I would like to have the babies

That's what I'm trying to find out, it's hard to see from your picture, I think my fish started squaring off last night and the second one not long after so I put them both in a breeder box, I don't want to lose any fry.
Woke up this morning but no fry as yet :-(

You could make your own out of a food container or empty milk container. Check out youtube....
