If she isn't big anymore then shes not pregnant anymore.

Do a really good search all around your tank, you'll find some fry.

The fry are probably hiding- they're really tiny right now!

Does she still have a gravid spot? There is a dark spot on their belly when they are pregnant.

She probably just ate a lot. I've seen guppies get *huge* stomachs after a big meal.
