Female betta swollen with eggs

I don't know if this is a true emergency or not, but...

One of my girls, Ripley, is super swollen with eggs. She's recently become very feisty and is very active. She doesn't seem troubled by her condition, but she just looks like she is going to pop! The most dominant girl in my sorority often displays her bars. I'm just wondering if its okay for her to be carrying those eggs or if there is something I should do for her. I tried googling, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot on the subject.

That is completely normal for females. She will either absorb them or she may release and eat them- either way don't be alarmed.

Eggy is not to be confused with bloated.

Thanks Teeney. That's what I thought, but I wanted to ask here to make sure. How long does it take them to reabsorb the eggs? Shes been like this for a couple weeks now.

I'm not entirely sure, I've heard of some that are eggy for days or eggy for weeks.
