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?

They seem to all be girls but I'm not an expert.
