Here is my best explanation:

'pregnant' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'former setter finally getting' is the wordplay.
'former' becomes 'ex'.
'setter' becomes 'pectin' (I've seen this before**).
'finally' indicates one should take the final letters.
The final letter of 'getting' is 'g'.
'ex'+'pectin'+'g'='EXPECTING'
