I am sorry biokid101, have not kept swordtails myself, so not a lot of advice to give.
The water test right for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates?
What other fish are in the tank? Is it possible that she had the fry, and someone ate them?

Not sure what would cause her to up and down in size from one day to the next.
My mollies get bigger and bigger every day, then about once a month they drop their fry and are small again.
It is possible that she dropped fry and you missed it. The angle could have made a snack of them. Possible swordtails will eat their own fry, I would have to read up on it.

The water test ok?
Can you post a picture of her? Does she look like a pregnant bloated? Any raised scales?
