Very Long Guppy Pregnancy

My guppy has been pregnant for almost two months, I'm wondering what's going on! I've got a small 10 gallon with 3 fancy guppies (2 female, 1 male), 2 honey gouramis and 3 corys. She's very active and healthy, swimming around with the other guppies. I keep my tank at 79F, and all of my levels (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, PH, hardness, chlorine and alk.) are perfect. I feed them a mix of Wardley's Essentials, freeze dried blood worms and live brine shrimp. The tank is planted with Windelov Fern and Crypto Lingua, so there are hiding places, without being crowded.

Why is she still pregnant? Thanks!

What is your temperature? Any pics of the gravid spot? Looks like she still is not dropping fry sooner or later yet, maybe not next week.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

she looks like she should drop soon. What works for me is a water change and about 81 degrees farenheit and about 1 TBSP per 5 gallons.

Bow down to MTS!!!!!!!!
