what to expect when you are "expecting"?

i think (not sure) that i might have a pregnant cherry barb? i've had a male and female pair for about two months now- all of the sudden, the female is looking fatter (and before you ask, its not overfeeding). like noticeably fatter- and the boy, who doesn't usually find her interesteing, is sticking a little closer to her. are they going to lay eggs?? if so, when?(noticed her fatter today for the first time) i do not want to breed them, so should i just leave them be and let them consume the eggs? they are in a 10 gallon with 5 tiny rasboras.

You'll probably find that the rest of the fish take care of any eggs. If you don't want to breed them, nature will take its course.
