is my fish pregnant?

i have 2 red wag platies, but i don't know how to tell if they are male or female. one is much bigger than the other and was wondering if anyone could tell me if it's pregnant or swollen?

Males will have a "tube" underneath while females have a "fan". First picture looks male, second looks like a pregnant female.

You should be able to tell by the fins
the male has pointy looking fins as his anal fin
females have actual fins.

Anyways, the platy you have pictured looks like an overly bloated male to me..but you have a better view of it so you can tell better

The fan might have been smaller because it swam fast?
