Pregnant or dropsy?

My cories have been pregnant before. Didnít even know this one was potentially a girl.

Does this look like dropsy or a pregnancy? Belly looks quite lumpy. Moving around and eating like normal, just moving more slow, maybe just because she is tired from carrying a bunch of babies but not sure. Anyone got opinions?

They lay eggs and bumpy shape often indicates eggs. Dropsy would be more rounded all around and more of a whole body bloat.
