Julie Bowen of Boston Legal and husband expecting first child

11/13/2006 at 01:16 AM ET

Update 3 pm: People confirms that she’s four months along. Julie tells People that they won’t be finding out the baby’s sex, saying, "We could know, but I don’t want to know. No names yet, nothing."

She also says she’s already a bit sick of being pregnant! "(I’m) eating in the middle of the night. I’m like a bear. I wake up in the middle of the night, eat food and go back to sleep again. It’s not fun, but it’s a wild ride. I’m looking forward to it being over."

And finding maternity clothes? Not easy. "[It’s] definitely is not my favorite thing in the world, because you’re stretching around a whole new body. What’s up with that? It’s like I’m 14 and have to figure out how to dress."

Originally posted at 1 am: Boston Legal and former Ed actress Julie Bowen, 37, and her husband, Scott Phillips are expecting their first child together. Julie added that she is already noticing the effects of pregnancy on the body, saying, "My boobs! Who knew? I always had two pepperonis on board and now I am shocked." Her sister is also lobbying for her to use cloth diapers and if not, "at least the Seventh Generation diapers, which are made of recycled materials."

“Her sister is also lobbying for her to use cloth diapers and if not “at least the Seventh Generation diapers”

I’m sure her sister has the best of intentions and is just being helpful, but I think it’s rather annoying when people
tell expectant mothers, “Oh, you need to do
things x,y, and z way, because that’s
what I do.”

That’s great for her! I had to laugh when she talked about going from pepperonis to having some boobs. That cracked me up! 🙂 Congrats to her and her husband!:)

I sure wish someone would’ve lobbied me to use cloth diapers while I was pregnant! We didn’t discover them until our daughter was almost 2 and dealt with terrible rashes from disposables for all that time for no reason. This time we’re doing cloth from the very beginning. We use 7th generation when we travel and we love them too!

From an environmental standpoint, 7th generation may be better than cloth diapers. Does anyone have detailed research comparing? It is my understanding that the amount of water and chemicals used to wash cloth diapers (and gas if you use a delivery service) is worse for the environment or at least as bad as using a disposable diaper.

If her sister was really concerned about the environment she would be lobbying for the method where you do not use diapers at all (monitoring your childs input and output). Certainly a lot of work, but I know a handful of folks who have been able to do this successfully.

Congratulations to Julie!

Congratulations to them! She is so gorgeous. I never watched Ed while it was running, but I have been watching reruns and I love them. She seems to have a real sense of humour about pregnancy, which is great. Personally, when I have children, I think I will try going with cloth diapers. I think my parents used them for my brother and I, and we hardly ever had a diaper rash.
