Ironically I'm dealing with the same issue...my one betta girl is also swollen with eggs and showing the signs of wanting to mate, but I don't got the extra tank or anything to breed her yet. Any alternatives?

Did the scales look like a pinecone? If so she may of had something called dropsy.

That is what I was thinking, dropsy when he mentioned the pinecone. Fill out the sticky, 3rd thread from top on this forum and any pics will help. Bloated belly, pinecone are 2 of the big symptoms for dropsy, which is very fatal for a fish if not taken care of properly and quite fast. Without knowing some of the basic info, can't tell you the hows and whys. But definatly get them in a QT tank (seperating each one), will most likely need Epsom salt, don't use AQ salt, that will make it worse. But please, fill out sticky and post it back on here for us to help save the others.
