    She is definitely pregnant. I can't estimate how long she is but the gestation time is 26-31 days. About a week before she gives birth she with be "squared", sounds weird but her belly won't be round like she is now she with be more like \___/. Also males with chase her more and the gravid spot (black spot near anal fin) will turn a slight reddish color. Good luck with the fry! I breed mine and I put them in a 10 gallon tank, it helps them grow faster because they can eat food without having to swim away from the adult fish, and they won't get eaten. Again good luck!!!

    It most likely is, as most female guppies come pregnant from the store, and pop em' fry in your tank, but you've got some time.
