This came from bettatalk.
female betta is full of eggs (or egg bound). Usually females may look a bit more round if they are full of eggs and have not yet released their eggs, or if they just released all their eggs and ate them all ;). In this case, you will find a white poop the next day and that is a clear indication that the mysterious bloat was from an over consumption of yummy eggs. On rare occasions a female may be unable to release her eggs and may become "egg bound": She will then look very bloated and uncomfortable and may lay at the bottom. If this condition does not pass, and the eggs are not released, the female may die. But this is a very rare occurrence (only happened to me once) (mmmm... Wait. That sounded kinda "funny", so let me rephrase this: only happened to one of my female bettas once ;).

Dragonfish- You're welcome! I'm glad I could find the info. lol
PrincessBetta, just keep an eye on Sass. The article said it 's pretty rare so hopefully, she'll pass the eggs soon. I've never had any problem with my girls. I've never seen them full of eggs. Maybe putting her next to a male might help, IDK.
