I have a suspicion that this Guppy might be pregnant or just getting a little bigger.

That would be a male so not pregnant. Male livebearers have distict male parts for analfins, they are longer, thinner and pointed while a female’s is the usual fan shape. Plus male guppies are usually smaller and more colorful than females.

Need a better picture of analfin ..
I see a female there with the analfin kind of closed up ?
If female and ever once with a male then yes to pregnant.

Males have a thin analfin females have a large fanned type fin.

Top is a male bottom is a female from the picture it looks like you have a female mainly based on the shape and color I can't really see the fin. Also it doesn't look pregnant just fat/stubby.

I vote female. It’s hard to tell from the photo but it looks like the fish has a partially transparent analfin, which makes the colored part look like a male gonopodium even though it’s not. I could be wrong though, again it’s hard to tell from the pic.
