It depends on what type, if its ballon then its hard to tell. but if its one, like the lyretail, then it should have a black spot near her anal fin. Mollies can take up to 3 months to have fry though, if there is alot of fry shes getting ready to birth.

FYI
The average gestation for a molly ( and most live bearers ) is 28 days, NOT 3 months. For more info on mollies, and pregnant live bearers, click on the links below.
