Busy Philipps' second pregnancy is not like her first.

"It's very different," she told me last night at Elle's Women in Television event at Soho House. "First off, I was not working [during] my first pregnancy because of the writers strike so I got to lay in bed until 11 a.m. and then I would saunter over to yoga.

"This first trimester, we were shooting furiously [on] Cougar Town," she said. "I was exhausted. I felt sick."

Fortunately, everything is OK now.

Philipps, who announced last month she was expecting again by tweeting a photo of a positive pregnancy test, and her screenwriter husband Mark Silverstein plan to find out the sex of the baby before she gives birth. They've also enlisted their 4-year-old daughter Birdie to help pick out names.

"We pitched her a couple of names today and she really didn't like them, so we're going to include her in the process," she said. "Her name is Birdie and my name is Busy, so I think anything she could come up with would probably be alright."
