One of my girls dropped her fry yesterday.  She just reached 2 1/4 inches. She looked like a balloon my girls are usually sleeker than that even at term pregnancy. She recovered almost immediately and is totally herself happy interactive with me and other fish. She is still a touch pudgy but a rawish seam showed up straight down the middle? I only ever saw this once but a guppy was struggling to birth and passed before dropping fry. She had this seam only 10x more pronounced.  I don’t think she needs treatment at this point I am concerned though as it unusual. The seam doesn’t show real great in the pic I couldn’t get a better one she is very active.

@Guppysnail maybe dropsy ?

Not at all. She is normal happy and active. I suspect she pigged out on another’s new fry. This appears to be like a tear from getting so large but I’m concerned the tear may be fry stuck or somehow harmful to her. I hope it heals she acts like she does not even notice. I removed as many fry as I could from the tank because of my suspicion but in 3 days 4 girls had large drops and it’s a 29 so too deep to get them all to keep her from eating. I have not fed the guppies in a few days but they pick and eat at stuff in the tank. I’m not moving her because I do not wish to cause stress or further injure her.

She could have retained some of here fry that's why she still bloated or she had some inter damage happen when she give birth if the bloating doesn't Go down I would try epsom salt bath @Guppysnail

Thank you I believe you were right about still holding fry. She looks just fine today normal size.  The red in the seam is gone it’s just a touch darker than her normal color. I thought she was literally splitting at that seam.
