If it takes a village to raise a child, Jamie-Lynn Sigler is all about turning to the wise ones for advice.

“I watched my best friend give birth a few months ago. I was in there, right behind the doctor,” the new mom, 32, tells WebMD magazine. “I was really panicking about all the things I needed to buy for the baby, and she was like, ‘You don’t need this, you do need this, try this and see if he likes it.’ That helped ease my fears.”

Despite her avoidance of typical tomes — she says, “Our grandparents did it without all these books, and they came out okay” — Sigler still took her time to research childbirth and prepare a birth plan.

Her doula, who was at Sigler’s side when she gave birth to her son, came into the actress’s life prior to her pregnancy and happened to be Hollywood-sent — literally!

When mom-to-be Jamie-Lynn Sigler met her fiancé Cutter Dykstra in steamy Myrtle Beach, S.C., last week, she didn’t think twice about slipping into a bikini.

Nor did she give much thought to being photographed in it.

“I would probably not be caught in a bikini otherwise, but when you’re pregnant, it is what it is!” she told PEOPLE at her baby shower (benefitting children’s charity Baby Buggy) in New York City Wednesday. “However your body’s carrying is how your body’s carrying.”

The actress, 32, met her fiancé, a minor league baseball player, down south while he was there for a game, and says that due to his travel schedule, the couple will probably opt for a staycation, rather than a babymoon before their son’s August arrival.

After a rough start ridden with morning sickness, Jamie-Lynn Sigler is full swing in the sweetest phases of her first pregnancy.

“[At] 12 weeks it’s like something happens — something clicks — and you’re back. I’m in the honeymoon stage of my pregnancy,” the actress told PEOPLE while visiting Drugstore.com at New York Family‘s New York Baby Show Saturday.

“I’m six and a half months now so I’m mobile. I can still move around. I can still put on heels if I need to — but I know summer’s coming.”

And for when those long days of summer officially strike, Sigler’s schedule will include time spent “floating in a pool somewhere” trying to beat the heat and keeping cool in her recently renovated home.

Expecting her first child — a son — in August, Jamie-Lynn Sigler says she’s gained some weight – in the chest!

“He’s a guy,” she tells PEOPLE with a laugh. “I’m sure he enjoys it.”
