big belly?

I am new to this site because we recently (last week)acquired two small clown loaches. One is 2 inches long and after coming back from an overnite stay away, we notice that it's belly seems noticeably larger than it was yesterday before we left.

From what I have read on this site, a pregnant loach is rare and especially at that size, so any ideas on what it could be? It's behavior is "normal"; it is active and gets along well with other fish(mollies and platys). There aren't any fish missing. I fed them all before we left yesterday and it didn't eat any more than it's share. We are worried it might be sick, but it doesn't act sick. Any info would be helpful!
