Crazy (pregnant?) Cherry shrimp

smileyshrimp

is this Cherry shrimp saddled? I’m new to keeping shrimp (I’ve had mine only for a month) and this cherry shrimp has been acting strange. She, (I’m 99.9% sure she’s female) Has been scurrying around the tank, and swimming through the open water way more than usual. I think the yellowish thing on her back might be eggs (?) but maybe it’s just her digesting things? I can’t tell. Also, I saw another shrimp sitting on top on her (fertilizing the eggs maybe?)

She's not berried but she is saddled so when she molts next she will breed if you have males in there
