When you say 'pregnant' what exactly do you mean? These fish are egg layers. Do you have a pair?

As mentioned they are egg layers, which makes me wonder if it is possibly "bloat" from overfeeding..

Jewels cichlids do not get pregnant. They lay eggs. If you have both male and female they may pair up and lay eggs together. If your female is "fat" it could be from bloating, constipation, being egg bound, and any number of other things.
