Melissa Joan Hart: Baby’s Sex Will Be a Surprise
But will it be pink or blue onesies this time around?
“We don’t want to know. We found out both other times, but this one we want [it to be] a surprise,” the Melissa & Joey star, 36, told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s Big City Mom’s Biggest Baby Shower in New York City.
Hart admits that each pregnancy has been very different for her — and she’s not about to sugarcoat it.
“The first one I was shocked at how much I didn’t like being pregnant and how uncomfortable I was,” she recalls. “The second time around I didn’t even realize I was pregnant because I was so busy chasing a 1-year-old.”
But this time has been a whole new experience for Hart as she learns to juggle all her responsibilities, including sons Braydon Hart, 4, and Mason Walter, 6.
“I’ve had a lot of nausea and exhaustion so it’s been a little more difficult, especially when dealing with two kids running around the house,” she says. “So I’m still trying to figure it all out.”
One thing is certain though: she would like to have another natural birth if possible.
“[Mason’s birth] was completely medically intervened. I wanted my second one totally different, so I did a hypnobirthing class and managed to pop Brady out naturally. That’s the plan again, but we’ll see.”
As for what she and the family have planned for Mother’s Day, that’s a surprise too.
“I’m not really sure. My husband said that he would make anything I want to eat, so we will probably spend the day at home eating all day,” she shares, adding that her most recent cravings have been dill potato chips.
