: Where did "The rabbit died" come from?
Back in the old days, rabbits were used in pregnancy testing. I'm a little shaky on the details. So I'll just guess. I think the woman's urine was injected into the rabbit. The animal was killed and examined. Maybe someone else has better information. Is there a doctor in the house?
(How about this for a pregnancy phase -- "wearing her apron high.")
