Exclamation Urgent please! Silver Molly (is she ready to give birth?)

Hi everyone. Im a first time poster here and its quite a special occasion for me. I have been keeping tropical fish now for about 3 months. Approx 3 weeks ago I bought two Silver Mollies both are female and were kept in a tank with males at the Aquatic Shop I bought them from.

I became aware that one of the Silver Mollies in particular is much larger than the other one, they were both about an inch long when I purchased them but now much larger.

One molly is getting extremely large and its obvious to me that she is pregnant, shes huge and I am assuming she was pregnant when I purchased her.

Could anyone give me any hints as to when she could pop?
I currently have her sat in a breeding trap as she has been quite aggressive towards the other female mollies but now is just sat there swimming in one spot which is very unusual for her and I am hoping she might give birth very soon.

Could someone take a look at my picture and give an estimate? Shes very round (width ways) and quite straight on the front.

Shes not a balloon molly.

Any estimates?
- Thanks

Give it about a week or so. When the bottom of her belly looks flat or square and she stops eating those are sure signs that it will only be days til birth
