“Apparently it was a part of God’s plan for my life. I was extremely shocked. I was shocked because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. And you know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened … all over again!”
Jessica said she’s trying to rein herself in a little bit with this second pregnancy.
“I didn’t really make any healthy, good decisions [during the first pregnancy]. The last time I ate everything in sight. I was really happy to be pregnant and I just didn’t even step on the scale. I was the person who turned around and said, ‘Just don’t tell me, I’m having fun. I guess I just didn’t realize you could gain that much weight that quickly. I had fun doing it but once I had Maxwell I realized that it all wasn’t water weight and I had to really work hard. In four months I lost over 50 pounds.”
Part of what’s helping Jessica avoid over-eating is the nausea she’s experiencing this time around.
“I’ve been really, really sick so I can’t wait to actually be able to crave something like I did in my first pregnancy. I’m due in the summer so I still have a ways to go — hopefully I start feeling better.”
And so what about the big wedding we’re all waiting for?
“We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up. I’m doing it very backwards, I know! I’ll just keep my legs crossed this time.”
Love it- LOL! When Jessica and Eric Johnson finally do tie the knot, you know it’s going to be a BIG ceremony. Can’t wait!
