Pregnant Swordtail.

She gave birth to the 5 I have almost 3 weeks ago now, but she is huge. How will I know she is getting ready to give birth again and how long from the last time? Thanx!

Typical for a swordtail is about 4 weeks but there is some variation and each fish is different. The period also gets shorter with a higher water temperature, so even the same fish will vary if the water temperature changes.

I just found a few more babies in the baby grass. They're tiny, so I'm thinking they are swords as opposed to creamsicle mollies. Can't tell for sure. Both fish look pregnant

If they are tiny, they are not creamsicle mollies. These are newborn, less than 8 hours old, creamsicles shown with mom.
