Ok so I know this is a weird Q but is it normal for a pregnant platy to basically stand on her head during labor...she began dropping eggs 2 days ago...then stopped and during she has kinda swam/ floated mostly head down and today most of her time is spent head down...

No, that is not normal at all. It seems your platy may be having swim bladder issues.
Any recommendations?

Other than the fact that she seems to have swim bladder issues, dropping eggs is also not normal for platies (they give birth to live fry).

Right...one was a stillborn fry after that it was just little orange balls that I assumed were undeveloped eggs...about 4 or 5 of them...the stopped...

What are your water parameters and do you have her in a breeder box/net?

She definitely sounds ill or stressed. If she's in a box or net pet her out. If you don't know your exact water parameters I'd recommend a large, 50% or more, water change asap to reduce potential water issues.

What is your maintenance schedule? Can you get a close up photo of the fish?
