ABS-CBN host-actress Jolina Magdangal excitedly revealed last November that she and husband Mark Escueta are expecting their second child.
Now on her second trimester, the 39-year-old Kapamilya actress-singer admitted that she's experiencing some struggles in her second pregnancy.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, January 3, Jolina shared an update with her followers and revealed one of the most challenging phases of her pregnancy.
She wrote, "The past few days lagi masama ang pakiramdam ng tiyan ko.
"Feeling bloated, medyo naninigas, mabigat. Minsan nahihirapan ako huminga na parang nasusuka na kailangan ko maupo or mahiga.
"Ang ginagawa ko ay ipinapahinga ko lang, pero kahapon nung nasa tagaytay kami, kakagising ko lang at nakatulog naman ng mahimbing pero ganun parin ang pakiramdam, kaya nagdecide kami na agahan ang balik ng manila the next day para dumiretso ng Asian hospital para magpa-ultrasound."
The Umagang Kay ganda host later noted that her pregnancy is going well and that their "#BabyNumber2" is growing healthy.
She added, "Thank you so much Papa Jesus and ok na ok si #BabyNumber2. And in-assure nya pa talaga kami na ok sya dahil naka thumb’s up. Hihihi!
"Naramdaman nya siguro na sobra ako nagworry kung ok sya. According to my OB, kailangan ko lang i-control ang way ko ng pagkain, dahan dahan lang. After 2-3 weeks pa ang next check up ko.
"Day 3 of 365 is about making sure that everything is ok. #TeamEscueta #Grateful #Blessed #PeleSerye"
For his part, Mark also uploaded the same family pic on his Instagram and wrote, "Thumbs up daw sabi ni Baby#2. Everything's okay. Thank you Lord. #17weeks #peleserye #teamescueta @mariajolina_ig @peleinigoescueta"
Jolina and Mark have yet to announce the gender of their second baby.
Their first-born son, Pele Iñigo, is turning 4 years old on February 18.
