How long were they together? You should be able to see the eggs if they are in the nest. The are a whitish-cream color as opposed to the clear bubbles.

If you're not using cups or leaves as nest covers, you should be able to see the eggs/fry.
Physically, the female should have a thinner body than before. And should loose her breeding bars. But sometime they stay that way (with bars). So I'd suggest that you look at the nest and see if there are eggs in them.
