pregnant? and other questions

first i know every one ask this question ... is my fish pregnant well im here to ask the same questions i have two pictures witch i will add .

so when i got my platys a week ago the day after i put them in the tank (2 males and 2 females ) i woke up to find five fry in the tank with i quickly moved to a 10 gallon nursery tank
but i have no idea witch of my two females had these fry as when i got them they both looked about the same and not pregnant the fry have all survived and are doing well

but now the last three day one of my females is hiding lots in the rock formation i have and that she looks bigger then when i got her and has a wider gurth but not huge like i see pictures my she also likes to hang out at the bottom of the tank one of the males always fallows her there
but as i have seen no gravid spot i have no idea if she is pregnant and havering no idea if she had the other fry almost a week ago

so my questions are
1. is my platy pregnant ( i honestly have no idea)
2. is there any way at this point to tell witch female had the last set

the only way to tell what one had them is that one would be thinner now then when you got it. it is always good to have at least 1 male to 2 females as the males tend to harass the females.
