Guppy not giving birth and pooping and eating constantly

I'm sorry to post a second thread about the same thing, but the situation is a little more urgent now.
My guppy has been looking extremely pregnant for quite a while. She has just been constantly pooping and I'm worried because I'm about to go on vacation but I want to keep some of the fry.

If you want to force her to birth - early, probably a bad idea - you could always transfer her to a tank/container with a temp 5-10 degrees cooler and it may cause her to go into labor quickly.

It's probably not a good idea because it's a large amount of stress that would induce the births and some of the fry might not be quite ready to come out.

Depending on the other fish in your tank, some of the fry might survive even if they're left in the tank anyway. Just be sure there is someplace for them to hide.
