I have a platy that dropped 2 babies then stopped and is just acting normal. This was three days ago. She still looks super pregnant. Has anyone seen this before? Can I expect the rest to be still born or for my platy to die when the fry inside her do?

I wouldn´t worry too much about it. Sometimes they just drop 1-4 fry and a few days or a few weeks later the other ones will follow. And actually, this is a common thing that certain females tend to do. Again, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Thanks. I just didn't know what to expect. Couldn't find any mention of this happening online.
