Female bettas are making a bubble nest?

So this morning I woke up and went over to feed my 6 females, they are in a community tank. I noticed there was a really small but THICK bubble nest.
Ive heard some females do this :s?
All 6 of them are bloated with eggs..
Could this be why?
There is no male in the tank.
Why are they doing this?

Some pics of the females might help.But as far as the nest I think it's quite possible for females to have built it.

I've had females blow bubbles but haven't done a nest that big. I agree with Paris, can you post pics of your girls? Are there any other fish in the tank?

Hmmm they all *look* like girls to me! Females can build nests its not unheard of! Lovely girls btw, love the first 2 CT girls, look at the length of the dorsals on them, very nice!!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...
