Hot dog!
In 2008, Alyson Hannigan of How I Met Your Mother announced that she was pregnant. The show is carefully plotted over many seasons, and her character, Lily, wasn’t supposed to be pregnant yet, so writers turned the sight of an increasingly and obviously pregnant Hannigan into a running gag—she was often seen standing behind large, round objects like globes and basketballs that did little to hide her belly. And in one episode, Lily recalls the time she won a hot-dog-eating contest. Viewers see her flashback, and in her moment of victory, lifts up her shirt to reveal her “very full stomach.”

During Lucille Ball’s 1952 pregnancy, censors required her condition to be referred to as “expecting.”
