Jessica Alba: “I’m Not Too Stressed About Being Overly Prepared”

With a second child on the way, Jessica Alba is now sharing with iVillage readers the latest information on her pregnancy. The Spy Kids: All The Time In The World star claims she has “a fierce, insatiable craving for watermelon” and is watching what she eats this time around.

She blogs, “I’ve banned my loving husband from cooking a half a pack of bacon every morning and ordering or buying five desserts for dinner every night. We both put on a lot of weight the first time around and made a pact this time to eat better.”

As for exercise, she’s doing prenatal yoga.

She reveals, “I’m doing prenatal yoga and taking 30-minute walks through my last trimester, which is more than I did with Honor. And my belly popped much quicker with this one. I have a bit more discomfort that I don’t remember having with my first, but I am toting and keeping up with a 3-year-old and still running around a lot.”

Alba also confesses they’re still working on the baby’s nursery.

She writes, “When we had Honor, we had everything prepped and ready to go — and not just for the initial newborn stage. We had a couple of stages checked off following that: probably a typical case of over-preparation. Right now we’re renovating our home to make room for baby No. 2, so we’re in a rental and we’re nowhere near the stage we were at when I was pregnant with Honor. And you know what… that’s okay.

It turns out, the first five months Honor was in our room anyway in a co-sleeper, so I’m not too stressed about being overly prepared and having everything set up perfectly this time.”
