How do I tell if my goldfish is about to give birth?

My 5 year old goldfish is in a 75 gal tank with three others. She’s always been large and I just recently changed the water because one of the goldfish had ammonia poisoning. No worries the water is clear and I tested it, no more ammonia. Now my oldest goldfish is sitting on bottom of the tank and seems to be breathing fast. She nudges up at times and it seems like she’s trying to poop something out. I’m not sure if it’s an infection or if she’s actually pregnant. What are the signs of a pregnant goldfish. Also she hasn’t been eating much these past few days. Please help! 🙁
