This is the season with eight episodes instead of the usual 13 to accommodate Sarah Jessica Parker's pregnancy. Parker's growing bump is well hidden though her character, Carrie, does reveal a surprising fondness for loose peasant tops. Carrie publishes a new book, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) struggles to lose her baby weight, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) sorts out her feelings towards her cheating ex and Charlotte (Kristin Davis, above right with Parker) tries to get on with her single life.
