Pregnancy in Literature Quiz (with 6+ Month Baby Bulge photo)

So, my tummy is starting to grow at an alarming rate and here’s the proof…When you’re barely 5’2″ that baby has nowhere to go but out and I’ve given up the idea of having one of those cute baby bellies some women have.

Now on to the quiz.  This week it’s all about pregnant characters in fiction (I had to find some reason to include the photo :))  See if you can tell me the name of the book where these pregnant women can be found. 

Here are the rules… 1. Open to everyone.  Play once or every week, that’s okay.  I’m happy to have you here today.

2. No cheating.  No looking at other commenter answers or Googling!  Yes, we’re going by the honor system

3. Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.

Answers to last week’s quiz here.  Current Leaderboard here.  I’ll be out of town until Friday evening, so get your answers in by Friday afternoon :)
