Big Tummy on Rosy Barb, is it just eggs?

Ever since I bought her 2 weeks ago she has gotten a huge belly, but not pine coned at all. Is she just full of eggs or is there something else going on? She eats like a piggy and swims non stop so I hope it is just eggs making her so big.

Here are some pictures of her...

I have seen this in some of my rosy barbs who are motivated eaters. Sometimes rosy barbs over eat and it causes internal damage which can lead to hemorrhaging. If there is bruising or signs of internal bleeding the little guy may not make it. If these were eggs it should be stretched along the stomach and toward the back and more square in shape and symmetrical. I would refrain from feeding and try and offer some green veg for fiber.
