Guppy due estimate?
 
Heya, I've been keeping some guppies for a bit and I noticed one is starting to gain that "box-like" look to it, but I haven't really experienced having my fish give birth yet so I'm kinda clueless on when she is going to give birth, here is a video, I put her in a breeder box temporarily just in case she is due some time soon.

P.S. My Camera skills are mediocre at best so bear with me please.

The video doesn't seem to be working for me, but I'd say if they have a boxy shape that in about a week they'll have the fry. It's hard to say since I can't see your fish, and each fish is different. My fish started squaring off about a week ago, and for the past week or so I've told myself "any day now." and she still hasn't had the babies. just keep an eye on her. once you see her behavior when she gives birth you'll know what to look for next time.
