While it took months before Carrie Underwood showed any signs of a baby bump, the mama-to-be is already itching to bounce back to her pre-baby weight. 

"I'm looking forward to reclaiming my body," the 31-year-old singer, who is due in the spring, tells People. "I've been saying it's been on loan for the past many months…I'm excited to take it back."

The American Idol winner is expecting her first child with husband Mike Fisher, having announced the news on Sept. 1 in the most adorable manner. Just two months later, pal Brad Paisley spilled the beans that Underwood is pregnant with a baby boy while the two were co-hosting the 2014 CMA Awards. 

So, has the couple decided on a moniker for their little one on the way?

"We don't have a baby name. We need to lock that down here pretty soon," the "Blown Away" beauty admits. "We joke a lot about funny things that go with Fisher, but there's not some family name that I have had to be like, ‘No! That's terrible!'"

And despite the fact that Underwood is eager to have her body back, the soon-to-be first time parent, who has continued working out during her pregnancy, calls "the whole process itself...really beautiful." 

"Even when I feel pretty large, it really is such a miracle and such a beautiful thing," she says. 

This isn't the first time Carrie has opened up about her unfamiliar pregnancy curves. She previously told Today's Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb that she can sometimes "forget" she's pregnant. "I'll just walk by a mirror...then I'll see myself and just start laughing," Underwood, who is currently on a vegetarian diet, but plans to go vegan after giving birth, admitted. "My body's definitely not mine right now!"
