How to use "Expectant" in context?

Once a woman hears the word "baby," her mind starts working overtime. She begins planning her new home, imagining the crib and the chaos that will ensue when her bundle of joy arrives. She starts counting down the days until she can see her "miracle." As the date nears, she starts to feel more and more like a woman about to give birth. Things start to feel more and more intense and she may start to experience feelings of nausea and fever. At around 12 weeks pregnant, most women will find out the sex of their baby. The rest of their pregnancy will likely go relatively smoothly, with occasional backaches, fatigue and swelling.
