Overweight? or something else maybe?

my female betta has always been kinda pudgy. but ive noticed that lately she is much more pudgy then usual. i dont think im over feeding her (2 pellets twice a day OR a blood worm in the mornign and a tiny piece of daphnia at night OR some flakes and no food on sundays). so i figured it could be maybe two other things.

maybe shes developing eggs? at what age to females get eggs?

and the other thing i thought was an early stage of dropsy. which i PRAY its not. i dont think it is though, i do partial water changes at least every other day, if not more often.


what do you think it is? any ideas? =/
