Pregnant or not?

Have new guppies. 2 of them have bigger bellies and are darker. The guppies are orange and the bellies are almost bluish. Could they be pregnant?

A photo would help probability is, yes they're pregnant

IMO that 2nd one looks like a male... The other one could be like 2 weeks into her pregnancy. She isn't that big

The first one looks more male than the second IMO the second has a gravid spot as opposed to the first but the first is also quite plump is what I was going on

The first two pictures look like males. The third picture I can't really tell.

Those look like males to me but the angle of the photos isn't making the ID easy. Regardless, without a visible gravid spot they certainly wouldn't be far along if they are pregnant females.

This video has photos of guppies in each stage of pregnancy with captions:
Stages of a Guppy's Pregnancy - YouTube

Also take a good look at the bottom anal fin - if it's rounded then they're females (see the pics in the video to compare). If the anal fins are longer, trailing or pointed then they're males.
