The 32-year-old is best known for her child stardom achieved after portraying Vada Sultenfuss in 1991's hit movie "My Girl" opposite of Macaulay Culkin.
Today, the expectant actress stars in HBO's "Veep" alongside "Seinfeld" actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale from "Arrested Development."
"I'm feeling pretty good so far," Chlumsky said of her pregnancy to People magazine. "I was really lucky- I did not have any morning sickness which was great because I was working."
The actress recently wrapped up shooting for the second season of "Veep," which will premiere on HBO on April 14.
Meanwhile, Chlumsky and her husband of five years are keeping the gender of their child a secret until the due date.
"We're working on getting the nursery ready," said the actress, who noted that she is reading up on pregnancy books.
"I'm being judicious with which books I read because I don't want to get overwhelmed," Chlumsky explained. "Most of the books have to do with how to have a worry-free pregnancy and keep the anxiety down."
As for "Veep," Chlumsky portrays a chief of staff to the Vice President, played by Dreyfus, on the comedy series. Created by Armando Iannucci, "Veep" is based on the BBC television sitcom "The Thick of It," and follows the life of a fictional U.S. president.
Chlumsky returned to acting after having remained largely out of the public eye since "My Girl" and its sequel "My Girl 2." The actress attended the University of Chicago in her native city and worked in writing fields before turning back to Hollywood.
"When I graduated from college I thought I was over with show business and was pursuing other things," the actress told Slate last year. "There were a lot of signs leading up to my getting back into [the] business."
