    Tetra's are egg scarrters not livebearers so chances of her being pregnant are pretty much non-existent although she may lay eggs around your tank..

    Female Black Skirt Tetra's are plumper and near the second black stripe the have an anal fin running paralell. Males are skinnier and smaller.

    your new one may have just been the dominate one in the tank and got some good food., thus "fat". If you really are concerned then, yes, a picture would be best.
