i have two females same as yours,they can get really fat b4 they drop it all depends on the fish but when you see her belly squaring off thats when she is getting close,a white tube becomes visible between their bottem fins,also if you look close you will be able to see the eyes of the babys at the back of her belly,thats another good sighn.
i can tell on mine the day b4 they birth and just stick them in a Guppy
trap over night which they dont seem to mind but if im not sure then i use the clear bags that you get them in from the pet shop and suspend them in the tank,they still feel part of the tank that way but the babies are safer,the mum may eat one or two but if you feed her b4 you go to bed she shouldnt eat more than that :)
