Default are my platties still pregnant

Hi eveyone, I have 2 pregnant platties in a 10 gallon tank. I moved them from my 125 gallon tank when I thought they were ready to have the babies, sure enough the next day there were babies, 3 days later they both appear to be heavily pregnant and they both appear to be hanging around in the top corners. I do water changes every other day and the maternity tank has a filter that I took from an established tank The babies about ( 10 ) seem to be fine. Can anyone tell me if the platies are done giving birth, I don't see any eyes or dark areas but they are still as fat as they were when I first put them in

thanks
David

I beleive that some live bearers give birth in batches over a period of time. Read this stiky of Bernie's as there may be some info you can use.
