Platy Pregnant?

I put in my male and female platy with 2 loaches in september when i joined in september I heard it takes 28 days for them to give birth. i havent seen any babies.
I look at the old photos when i just got it and the stomach seems pretty large now.

Just wanted to save a few or all fry if i can. Any advice? The male seems to harass the female now.

Should i move her? Dont want to be too early.

you know she's pregnant if she has a black spot on her belly. I would just move her as long as the other tank works just to save as many fry as possible. Also if you don't like breeding traps put in breeding grass. I helps alot by giving fry a place to hide until it's safe to come out.

I think one of my platies is pregnant too since it did get fatter in the past week and I've had it for two weeks. What are other signs of a pregnant platy?
