Tell us about maternity fashion. It's easier to be pregnant in the summertime than in the winter, when you're in pants and sweaters, so you have to buy those stupid elastic-waist jeans. I can wear sundresses I wore pre-pregnancy and will wear again after.

What do you wear a lot of? I love leggings and knee-length tunics. Sort of the Bohemian beatnik look.

Where do you recommend other pregnant women shop? Target's great. Old Navy has maternity. Destination Maternity. Thrift stores are great. Rag-O-Rama. I don't mind wearing plus-size, if it's trendy. My mom's pretty jealous. When she takes me shopping, she's like, "We never had all of this wonderful stuff available."

What's your favorite accessory? [Pats belly.] This is the accessory of 2009. Madonna wants another one. Angelina might be having another one. I personally know six other girls that are pregnant.

What do you miss wearing most? I like wearing 1940s Katharine Hepburn pants, and I had to really let pants go. I've got pregnancy leggings on, and that's as pants as I get.

The outfit:

Dress: From her massage therapist, who sells clothes on eBay

Tank top: From a friend at a clothing swap

Leggings: From Destination Maternity

Shoes: Born. "These are the untrendiest shoes I have ever worn and a size larger than I'm used to, but pregnancy kind of dictates these things."

Bag: from Turkey. "I bartered shamelessly for this on my birthday two years ago."

Buttons: From a booth at ComFest last year

Necklace: "Stolen" from her mother

Bracelets: Bartered from a flea market in Istanbul

Earrings: From Evolved
