Alison Sweeney Not Ready for Daughter's Arrival

Expectant mom Alison Sweeney better get a move on if she wants to be ready for her daughter‘s expected arrival date of January 20th. The Biggest Loser host recently blogged that between “production schedules and then the holiday rush, I seriously haven’t even bought diapers yet.”

Alison has yet to pack her bags for the hospital either, despite her doctor having “a firm conversation with me about how second children very frequently come quicker and earlier than first.” Even though the actress’ 3 ½-year-old son Benjamin Edward arrived on his due date, Alison is trying to take her doctor’s advice and prepare herself for her daughter’s possible early arrival.

“But even with nine months to think about it, (she’s kicking me right now as if to say ‘Yup! I’m coming, Mom!’) it isn’t really real to me yet. Ben seems way better prepared for his baby sister than Dave [Sanov] and I are … Is that normal?!”

Readers can catch Alison on The Biggest Loser on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on NBC. This season began filming in September so viewers will be able to catch Alison “growing over the next few months,” the soap star notes.

I can’t wait to hear her little girl’s name! She seems so nice and down to earth and her son is such a doll.

I TOTALLY understand what she’s saying! I’m due a couple of weeks after her and I still have things to finish up (washing the baby’s clothes, packing the hospital bags, writing out the birth plan, etc.). This is my first, and it just doesn’t seem real yet that very soon our family of two will become a family of three.

Oh I did the same thing when my second son was about to come, I procrastinated like crazy. Finally my husband told me I had to at least get the bassinet made up and a few outfits washed. Sure enough my son came 9 days early!

I’m in the same position as Allison. My baby is due in exactly two weeks (three days after hers) and I’ve done nothing but stock up on diapers. This is baby #2 and my 17-month-old daughter was 11 days late. My husband keeps asking me about the birth plan, bassinet, hospital bag, you name it. Hopefully I’ll get it together this weekend.

I’ve watched Allison for years on Days and now through the magic of the camera, we can do the same with her growing family! Congrats and many good happy days ahead. Treasure every moment because with a 22 year old, I’ve see the time FLY!
BTW…let Sami get back with Lucas…..we’re due for some major fireworks:)

Congratulations!!! I have been watching you on Days since you were a little girl and now you have your own little girl. I have three (all grown up now) and they are a blessing. Cherish every minute it goes by soooo fast.
