/ 04:00 PM July 22, 2019

As Andi Eigenmann approaches week 39 of her second pregnancy, she admitted that her condition is not ideal for giving birth via vaginal birth after c-section (VBAC).

Eigenmann thus plans to focus on being more disciplined, to ensure quick recovery after giving birth, as stated on her Instagram account yesterday, July 21.

Week 39! Baby has been goin lower by the week according to my doctor. Such good news to hear but my situation still isnt ideal enough to be so sure of achieving my VBAC dreamz (same reason I went through a CS with Ellie in the past.) At the beginning of my second pregnancy, I became more aware of what I wanted for myself (and baby) and a VBAC + going as natural as possible was definitely the top priority. Honestly, I knew Id be devastated if I couldnt go for one. But as my pregnancy is nearing its end, all that matters to me is that I go through the best (safest) way to deliver baby into this world. I am still proud of myself because I atleast tried and did what I could. I will accept what is meant to be and keep smiling! So in the event of another C- section, my new mindset is to just promise myself that I will be even more disciplined in terms of achieving a fast recovery. Getting back into my daily habits of living healthy and clean ASAP is enough motivation specially because this time I will be having a new little ray of sunshine to raise and nurture. I am still scared and nervous, but also very excited to officially be a mom of 2 very soon!

The actress confessed she feels “devastated” about not giving birth via VBAC, despite it being her top priority.

“At the beginning of my second pregnancy, I became more aware of what I wanted for myself (and baby) and a VBAC + going as natural as possible was definitely the top priority,” Eigenmann said. “Honestly, I knew [I’d] be devastated if I [couldn’t] go for one.”

“But as my pregnancy is nearing its end, all that matters to me is that I go through the best (safest) way to deliver baby into this world,” she added.
