Swordtail pregnancy.

My swordtail is starting to square off and for the last couple of days her appearance hasn't changed. I isolated her so she could give birth and to keep her away from the male who is constantly harassing her but she still hasn't given birth. What are some good signs telling me she will drop in the next day or two. Or If I post a picture will anyone be able to give me a ruff estimate of when she's due.

Post a picture, but normally if you move a far along gravid or boxing off female, she will either hold the young for a few more days or even abort them.
I wonder why tough corals are called hammers, and weak corals are called buttons...
