Platys normally carry for about 25 to 30 days. If this growth started 3 weeks ago and you have a male in with her (do you?) then you could see fry any day now.

She might have just been getting fat at first then got pregnant. If the tank isn't heated the pregnancy will take longer then in a warmer tank so that also factors into it. She looks pregnant but there is a chance she's just fat even with a gravid spot. I would guess you'll have fry fairly soon though.

Placed a water heater in on the 15th April and She had her fry 2 days ago, early morning. I managed to rescue 3 from being eaten straight after they were born.

Mark it on your calendar and in roughly 4 weeks you should have more. Now that she's had fry it's much easier to predict when she'll give birth. Try to feed the tank several times a day starting after like 3 weeks and then since the adults are well feed they will be less likely to eat the babies once they're born.
