Actress, model and author Molly Sims covers the February edition of Fit Pregnancy. She also covered the mag in 2012 when she was pregnant with her 2-year old son Brooks.
The mom-to-be gave some great insight to the life of the 2nd time pregnant woman in her cover interview.
She shared how this pregnancy has been easier even though she said she had morning sickness all day this round and only in the evening with her first.
The author of the new Amazon bestelling book, “Everyday Supermodel: My Beauty, Fashion, and Wellness Secrets Made Simple” said she has learned “not to freak out over every single symptom,” and to be more practical, adding “now I know exactly how many onesies I need when the baby arrives. I don’t have the anxiety of being a first-time mom. Moreover, I know to wear my Spanx tights when I go out, and my T.E.D. compression hose when I fly to prevent blood clots.”
She also realized that being too hung up on wanting to realize a baby plan is not realistic.
“First, I had a velamentous cord insertion [when the umbilical cord inserts into the fetal membranes rather than the middle of the placenta, causing a higher risk of rupture],” said Sims, who is married to hubby Scott Stuber. “The doctor monitored me closely throughout the pregnancy, and I had a scheduled C-section to protect the cord, which was necessary, but disappointing. This time, I don’t have the same condition, so I’m not opposed to a VBAC [vaginal birth after Cesarean].”
Imperfect can be perfect.
