Is the Fey Queen of Wands pregnant?

Hi everyone,

I found a website with all the Fey images for anyone who hasn't seen this card: sorry, link to complete deck removed by moderator

When I first saw the Queen of Wands, I just saw a curvy lady in a dramatic pose with her hand resting on her hip. It is a funny pose - with her upper body twisted round slightly - but a dramatic pose for a drama queen seemed quite fitting! :p But then my mum saw this image and instantly saw a pregnant lady resting her hand on her baby bump. This confused me, and after a while of scutinising the image and discussing it, we're not sure what to make of it.

One of the reasons I'm confused is that I haven't seen the Queen of Wands portrayed as pregnant before, and it doesn't seem to make much sense that she would be. Ok, all the Queens are nurturing. But this one is less "motherly" than say, the Queen of Cups being double Water, who isn't pregnant. Even the earthy Queen of Pentacles would make sense being pregant to me, she's sensual and rooted in the physical world so I could see the connection with fertility... But the Queen of Wands? She loves being the centre of attention and is usually very popular and fun to be around. Super-laid back and maybe even a bit vain. Where does pregnancy fit in?

My deck didn't come with the companion book, so I'm wondering if anyone out there has the book and whether it confirms that this Queen is/isn't pregnant. And if she is, does anyone have any ideas as to why pregnancy fits with the Queen of Wands? I'm a bit stuck, to be honest.

Much love & thanks in advance,
