Popular depictions of pregnancy

Today I tried to think of as many portrayals of pregnant women in mass media (movie, music, books etc.) as I could. This is what I came up with:
Generic woman running to the bathroom and retching.
Desperate housewife Gabrielle adding hot sauce to her salsa.
"The hand that rocks the cradle" miscarriage scene.
Padmé in Star Wars 3.
Sigourney Weaver with alien infestation (o.k., she's not really pregnant).
The virgin Mary (only annunciation pics).
Xena episodes in which she is pregnant
The Sheriff in Fargo.
