After announcing the good news of having her second baby, Bianca Gonzales revealed the struggle she has been facing during the first four months of her pregnancy.
In an Instagram post, Bianca revealed how she has been experiencing what others call ‘morning sickness’, saying she it was not just during the day for her or suring the evening but the whole day.
She wrote: “One of the many faces of motherhood. #realtalk (Warning: long #mommydiaries post)
This is pretty much how I looked every single day during the first four months of my pregnancy.
OH, TOILET. It wasn’t morning sickness nor evening sickness, it was all day, all night sickness. I would vomit 8 to 10 times every day and I lost 9 pounds. Hyperemesis gravidarum, they call it, and apparently Kate Middleton and Ayesha Curry both had it just recently (pampalubag loob ko lol). I still went to work, did meetings, saw friends, and none of them had any idea that my bathroom breaks would be to vomit. I would always bring wipes and mouthwash everywhere I went.”
Bianca also looked back at her first pregnancy when she had a much smoother experience with her daughter Lucia.
“NOT A BREEZE. When I was pregnant with Lucia, it was sooooo easy. I felt like I aced it! It was so effortless, I didn’t feel any uneasiness at all. So boy, was I in for a surprise with this second pregnancy! My wonderful OB Dra. Tere helped me focus on the brighter side of things by reminding me that my nausea was a sign that my pregnancy hormones are strong, therefore, good for the baby. Thank God, our baby is very healthy and everything is a-okay.”
