A newly-pregnant friend is a wonderful thing. You can ask her all the nosy questions you've always wondered, and she's sure to teach you a thing or two about the weird and wonderful female body (seriously, we are awesome). When you're pals, open discussion is welcome and encouraged — knowledge is power, after all.
