Guppy Emergency

My female guppy who has been pregnant for about 4 weeks is looking like she is going to blow up! I have 11 fry 5 from the biggest and 6 others from an unknown mother. I thought it was the one i was concerned aout because her black spot turned into a clear looking yellow/red sack but she it now so huge that it looks unnatural and i think her gravid pouch is still in there somewhere. Has anyone had a guppy who got huge after giving birth? i'm not sure if there is something seriously wrong with her or if she is going to give birth. I'm going to put her in the breeding box just in case but I dont know if she is actually pregnant. her stomach is bigger than most pregnant guppies...

ideas? or has anyone seen this post-pregnancy before?

Your link didn't work so I couldn't see your fish. Jake is right that the fish probably has dropsy. I had guppies that had dropsy and I always end up euthanizing them. I had one female that recovered but then came down with dropsy again a couple of months later. How is your fish doing?
