Actor Alwyn Uytingco is happy and excited for his growing family. "Loading: Baby No. 2," he wrote as caption for the 2D ultrasound photos he posted on Instagram. "Excited na kami para sa'yo, ang aming second child!" he wrote in another post. "Ilang buwan na lang makikita ka namin! Thank you, Lord, sa healthy pregnancy ni Nanay," he added.
When his wife, actress Jennica Garcia-Uytingco,announced her second pregnancy in December 2017, they were a bit alarmed with the results. "My doctor diagnosed our condition with threatened abortion because I've been contracting on almost a daily basis. While having my trans-v ultrasound, [my] doctor said I was contracting, but I couldn't feel it," she wrote.
Because of her condition, Jennica had to cancel her Kalinga ni Nanay classes in December and January (she advocates natural parenting). The preggo mom hoped "that by February, everything would go smoothly and our family can go back to our usual rhythm," she said. Thankfully, Jennica is now doing great and is back to educating fellow preggos and new moms again.
"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," Jennica had said previously. "I appreciate my husband and [daughter] Mori even more now that I am carrying another baby. Both [have] been very understanding of what I am going through," Jennica added.
The couple went to get their second baby's ultrasound at World of My Baby (W.O.M.B.), a perinatal women's health and 3D/4D ultrasound clinic. They opted for a 2D ultrasound scan, which is the most basic type, through which the doctors can already check on the baby's condition inside the womb.
