No those are unfertilized eggs. When it switches to the bottom of the shrimp then its pregnant.

She's "saddled", when they drop and are fertilized, then she's "berried".

Ah understood. What's the average time from saddled to berried once bred?

As little as 1 molt, or as long as it takes.

She is not pregnant but very close, one more molt and she is probably pregnant

That is her saddle, where all the unfertilized eggs are stored, once this shrimp mates the eggs will be fertilized and transferred somehow into its belly.
