That spot, their gravid spot, grows and gets darker the further along they are. The incubation period for guppies is 28 days, but it can be shorter or longer. Oftentimes in their first couple pregnancies they can take up to 2 months to give birth. Also, guppies can be pregnant with several different "stages" of fry to be more space efficient- so they can give birth to some fry and still be pregnant with other, younger ones.

as you probally know they have the gravid spot and as it gets darker the closer it is til your female is going to give birth, and they carry the eggs for around 4 weeks

agreed with all the above posts... She will also be able to keep giving birth for almost 3 more times because guppy can store sperm from previous "spawnings."
