Saab Magalona is now 31 weeks pregnant with her second child, a major milestone for her and husband Jim Bacarro.
The pregnancy has been easier for both of them this time around compared to what they went through with their firstborn Pancho, who turned one last February.
Saab was expecting twins, but owing to complications, she gave birth prematurely. The baby girl they named Luna did not make it and Pancho barely survived.
The celebrity mom shares in her Instagram post dated July 23, "I had to deal with so much anxiety nearing my 30 weeks of pregnancy because my traumatic birthing experience the first time around was when my baby girl (Pancho's twin) lost her heartbeat at 30 weeks and 6 days.
"We had to do an emergency c-section to save our baby boy. Both Pancho and I almost didn't make it because of complications.
"He stayed in the NICU for 2 months, I was in and out of the ICU for over a week.
"All of this happened so quickly. Too quickly. Life is very short."
And now that Saab has passed the "dreaded 30 weeks and 6 days" of her second pregnancy, she and Jim feel that it calls for a celebration.
She ends her caption with an encouraging message.
"I just wanted to share this with you in case you're putting off something very important to you just because you're scared.
"Do it now and be grateful that you still can [sparkle emoji]"
Saab and Jim announced that they are expecting a second child in April 2019.
They will have another boy.
