Pregnant guppy in tank that is still cycling?

I've noticed that one of my guppies has been getting bigger lately. At first, I thought she was just having a bloating issue, so I started giving them a single pea once a week to help out their digestive tracts. However, I am starting to notice that she is developing a dark gravid spot as well. My main concern for making this thread is because I am concerned about the fry living in the tank while the water is going through such harsh chemical changes. How can I best prepare for mommy and her babies at this time? Thanks in advance

TL;DR: guppy is pregnant, tank is still cycling. What should I do?

By the time she gives birth the tank should properly be cycled! If not it could cause her to hold them until the conditions are right for her to give birth! But remember when she hold it can cause her stress and maybe even death! But if u have good aeration, a heater, and plenty of places for them to hide they should be fine! Thats just my opinion though! Good luck with your fry!
