I'm not certain that the 2nd one is still holding.

The marks on her mouth/lips look like she may have been involved in a lip locking contest with other fish, or she may have been eating algae off the rocks and glass.

If she's been doing either of those things since the spawn, she may not be holding anymore.

If she isn't eating, you are going to need to determine what's going on with her.

There's always a chance she could be holding a very small amount, but I don't really see any enlargement at all to the buccal cavity. It isn't unusual for first time moms to spit or swallow eggs/fry, or to get rid of the majority of them and only hold a few.
