Does pregnancy get easier with each new child? You’d think so, but that’s not always the case. Both of my pregnancies were pretty much a breeze, apart from nodding off at my desk occasionally, not being able to see my feet and getting ravenous I-need-it-or-ELSE! cravings for peanut butter on toasted English muffins. But I know plenty of moms whose first time was fine but whose second or third babies left them so miserable they swore: “No more!”
In the case of Tori Spelling, she has found that the fourth time’s the charm.
She tells People today, “This is actually the best pregnancy I’ve had out of all of them, knock on wood” – meaning her three children Liam, Stella and Hattie.
This time around, she says she hasn’t had any morning sickness, and she’s even feeling energetic! “[It's the] total opposite of the other three.”
Considering all that’s going on in her life, it’s a good thing her new little-one-in-the-making isn’t slowing her down.
Tori just signed on to host a new TLC reality show, Craft Wars, a competition in which ordinary crafters will face off against each other to see who reigns supreme in the realm of glue, scissors and thread.
“We are a very crafty family,” says the host/mom, adding that husband Dean McDermott outshines them all.
Then there’s the business of promoting her new book, CelebraTORI, which hits the shelves in a few days. This one is about the art of throwing great parties.
And, of course, she has the everyday challenges and joys of raising three other children – including little Hattie, who’s just 5 months old. Assuming Tori is now in her 4th month or so, that means the baby will have a big sister who’s less than a year older. (Better get that second Diaper Genie ready!)
But the best part of an easy pregnancy is that you really get to enjoy it, rather than feeling miserable and wishing Week 40 would hurry up and arrive already so you can eat a full meal again.
Hope the next few months continue to be smooth sailing!
