Lightbulb New Betta, Big Belly

I've read some of the forums, and based on that I'm pretty sure she's egged up, but I would rather be safe than sorry, so I leave it to ya'lls judgement. We just got her 9 days ago, she had a belly then. This is our second go around with a betta, the first one didn't go so well, actually alot of that goes on Petco for giving us a different answer to the same question every time we went, soon as we went to Petsmart, seems like we got people who actually know what they are talking about. Either way, she was the most spazzed out, active of the bunch, so I picked her to entertain my husband (who has anxiety and the fish really help him cope). She's a beauty, red and white (to match the Phillie's Mancave). She's gotten pretty huge. She's swimming well, it was hard to get pictures, took me over an hour. She was quite literally darting all over her little cup when I picked her, and now that she's in a 1 gallon, she's having all kinds of fun. She's quite literally a little spaz, fun to watch. So, is she egged out? Do you think she'll drop them, or reabsorb them soon? Does the reabsorbtion process affect her eating/feeding schedule?

She looks more fat or swollen then eggy. I could be wrong though. If she is just eggy, don't even worry about it.

Fast her for about 3 days and see where she is then. With no food coming in she may absorb them (if they are eggs) for the nutrition.

If she is still rather large like that, let us know and we can go from there. But for now, I would say no food for 3-5 days and see if that helps.
