They all look pregnant to me and If they have been around any males for any amount of time then they definitely are.

Its hard to say for the first two, but your Dalmatian Mollie looks like shes pretty close to giving birth. I would say she probably will withing the next week or so. It takes mollies usually 3-5 weeks to give birth so the others will give birth in due time. hope that helps some!
