Jennica Garcia, 27, announced that she is pregnant with her second child with husband Alwyn Uytingco, 29.
In her Instagram post today, December 10, the daughter of dramatic actress Jean Garcia revealed that she is going through a delicate pregnancy due to what her doctor called "threatened abortion."
According to Jennica, it is a condition where she suffers from pre-term contractions without her actually feeling it.
She elaborated in her caption, "What a beautiful gift from God before the year ends. I am PREGNANT with our second child!
"Alwyn and I have been trying since January, ever since the year started that is why I just can't contain the joy in my heart.
"I am having a difficult pregnancy this time around.
"My doctor diagnosed our condition with threatened abortion because I've been contracting on almost a daily basis, while having my trans-v ultrasound, doctor said I was contracting but I couldn't feel it.
"Because of this I was asked to be on bed rest and take some medications.
"I cancelled all Kalinga Ni Nanay Classes for the month of December and January with the hope that by February, everything would go smoothly and our family can go back to our usual rhythm."
Despite her difficult pregnancy, Jennica remains optimistic about welcoming another child to her family.
Jennica said, "I appreciate my husband and Mori even more now that I am carrying another baby.
"Both has been very understanding of what I am going through.
"Even my 2-year-old started being patient with me.
"I hear her talking to her doll, how they must keep their voices down so I could rest.
"Haaay... Salamat Panginoon at ito na ang simula ng aking pangarap na magkaroon ng isang malaking pamilya.
"Dalawa na sila, tatlong chikiting na lang po!"
She also asked for prayers for her safe pregnancy, saying, "We appreciate all those who are praying for the good health of our second child. Maraming salamat po!"
Jennica didn't say how long she has been pregnant with her second child.
But based on her photo with husband Alwyn and daughter Mori, Jennica's baby bump was already visible.
Alwyn and Jennica have been married since February 12, 2014.
