Mom-to-be Ilana Glazer is on cloud nine as she awaits the arrival of her first child.

The Broad City star swung by Jimmy Fallon's late-night show when she offered up some details about her pregnancy journey.

"I'm feeling really good, but I feel a little guilty about it, I guess," Glazer shared, noting how countless women get sick while pregnant. "I was sick for a bunch of months, and then after that, I was like, 'This is the coolest thing ever.'"

"Now that I'm not puking, I'm like, 'This is really cool,'" she quipped. "At the time [I was sick], I was like, 'I'm torn.'"

Fallon pointed out how "wild" and "bizarre" it is that in her upcoming thriller False Positive, she plays a pregnant woman — but Glazer clarified that she wasn't carrying the baby while filming, which occurred nearly two years ago.

Due to the pandemic, the movie's release kept getting delayed, and oddly enough, the stage of pregnancy that she's at now perfectly coincides with her character's. "It's actually creepy," she joked of the timing.

Unlike her own experience, her new flick — which hits Hulu on June 25 — recounts a darker side of pregnancy, as it follows a pregnant woman who grows increasingly concerned over her OBGYN's (Pierce Brosnan) actions and intentions.

It's "about how the patriarchy is expressed through medicine," she told Entertainment Weekly.

For her own journey, the actress is making sure she's "in control" every step of the way.

"I don't feel like I'm having the rug pulled out from under me in any way," she said, adding that she also feels prepared since she's surrounded by a ton of "amazing role models for pregnancy and parenthood."

"I'm not afraid to ask a billion questions," the brunette beauty declared. "There are certain trends in society of how pregnancy should look — the 'shoulda coulda wouldas' that are put on women all the time but are so amplified in pregnancy. I'm specifically seeking out the most spiritually healthy and welcoming experience."

The comedian revealed in March that she and husband David Rooklin — who tied the knot in 2017 — were expecting their first child.
