But, she's "very, very grateful kasi nga sobra ko lang talagang nararamdaman yung love."

Pregnancy suits Angelu de Leon.

The big difference this time, she says: "May tatlong tao pang nag-aalaga at nagbubuhos pa ng pagmamahal."

She is referring to her husband Wowie Rivera and daughters Nicole and Louise, of course.

In her two previous pregnancies, "Mas madali, pero with all the problems I had, parang I just had to go by it every day."

Her third seems to be more delicate. During the first trimester, she had a four-day bleeding and a week-long bed rest.

"Parang nanganganay ako. Ang takot ko, 'Okay ba yung baby?"

But there's no reason to complain. The things she missed in the past are what she's enjoying at present.

"Parang ngayon, with the love of my husband and the love of my two kids, parang sobra akong overwhelmed.

"And sabi ko nga, pinapa-realize sa akin ni God, paano ba talaga ang dapat na pagbubuntis, o how it feels to have the support that you need when you're going through pregnancy," relates the Promama brand ambassador.

How's the relationship of Wowie with her children?

Showing her dimples, she replies, "I'm very blessed with him.

"I guess parang sabi ko nga, one of God's blessings is my husband. Kasi hindi siya nagpa-pry.

"But he's just very open with all the changes—how my kids react to him.

"And then, he's very respectful to them so very blessed ako dun kasi nga, hindi pilit.
