Alexa PenaVega Says She Worried Her Former Eating Disorder Would Affect Her Pregnancy

Alex PenaVega looks gorgeous while showing off her baby bump on the cover on Fit Pregnancy and Baby‘s November issue.

Here’s what the pregnant 28-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On finding the right time to start a family: “Carlos and I wanted kids for a while, but this industry does not make it easy for you to be pregnant. We travel so much for work. Plus, we wanted to be in a good place financially. But we realized that the ‘perfect time’ doesn’t exist. So, about six months before I was scheduled to go on Dancing With the Stars, I had my IUD removed and said, ‘Whatever happens, happens.’”

On worrying that her former eating disorder would affect her pregnancy: “We tried to get pregnant for a good six months without luck. When it’s not working, you think, ‘Is there something wrong with me?’ I struggled with an eating disorder when I was younger. It was a big part of my life, and I was worried that I wasn’t getting pregnant because of some long-term damage from what I’d put my body through. Even though my doctor said I was healthy, I felt so guilty about it.”

On sex being better while trying to get pregnant: “I found there’s such a difference between having sex when you’re trying for a kid and when you aren’t. For us, sex became so much more intimate, beautiful, and passionate when we were trying. Suddenly the realization hits you: ‘Oh my God, we could be starting another life!’ That brought us so much closer.”

On loving her son Ocean before meeting him: “My baby is moving all the time; I wonder when he actually sleeps. I discovered I can play little games with him. He chases my hand around my belly: I push my hand on it, and he kicks it off. I wish I could explain how my heart feels when we play that.”
