I had half a dozen female guppy's, all of which were impregnated at roughly the same time, all developed that the same rate and all but one have given birth, ending three weeks ago. The last one has still not dropped and she was actually the biggest of the lot.

Can she be baby bound and if so she will probably die. Anyway to induce labour?

A bit of salt can help induce. So can a water change. Also they can store sperm, so she might have waited to impregnate herself.

You cannot see the babies eyes in her gravid spot from this pic but she is impregnated. Other angles clearly show sets of eyes. She has been this size for 3 weeks, concerning!
