Molly Acting Odd

So my one molly is acting strange compared to her two companions who are happy and carefree as usual. The one of concern has lately been getting herself wedged between a breeder net and the glass aquarium. Once freed she will repeat after an hour and/or sit at the gravel level and not move to much at all. She is not being picked on by the others and when she does swim around seems to do so lazily. Water parameters seem to be normal like always and the other fish seem fine. She does appear to be breathing quickly sometimes but I cannot decide if that is fear of getting stuck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Is it possible she is prepping to give birth? Because when my platies are ready they have similiar behavior and will swim around and act different. I am thinking she could be pregnant check behind her anus if she is gravid ie a dark spot then she maybe ready..just let nature do its thing..

I'll keep an eye out, she's a black molly so a dark spot really is not going to show , but we'll see.
