“A bun in the oven”
Meaning: Pregnant

The word “oven” has been used as a slang term for “womb” since the late 1700s, the bun refers to the growing baby. Some scholars trace the idea of creation correlating to rising bread back to the ancient Greeks: The gods were millers, and humans were the product they baked – a process that humans replicated, albeit on a less cosmic scale.
