Alison Sweeney Is Having A Girl!

Alison SweeneyAlison Sweeney has revealed for the first time that she and husband David Sanov are expecting a daughter! Alison and David have a 3-year-old son, Benjamin.

“We found out that it’s a girl and we’re really excited about that,” said Alison, who is due on January 20th. When asked if she and her husband were discussing names, she laughed, “It’s a battle we’re waging. It’s going to be a long time before we figure that out.”

As for the not-so-pleasant effects of being pregnant, Alison admitted, “I have moments of pretty extreme morning sickness, which has not been my friend, but I get through it and I’m happy to hopefully be past it.”

And what about any changes to her diet? “I haven’t had cravings yet so much as aversions. Three-and-a-half months so far, all I want is like a bowl of cereal!”

Alison, who also still plays the part of Sami Brady on Days of Our Lives as well as being the host of Biggest Loser, said she’s told her son she’s pregnant and “I’ve shown him pictures of the ultrasound of the baby.”

Alison said that she’s still exercising safely during her pregnancy, including taking a spin class with Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper.

Bob and the other Biggest Loser trainer, Jillian Michaels, “have had lots to say about my workouts. They’ve taught me well. They were very cautious and concerned for me — they were very cute. The biggest issues are you have to make sure your heart rate doesn’t spike a lot and your body temperature doesn’t heat up.”

    Ahhhhhhhhhh, I see! Thanks Emma 🙂 I wondered how she could find out so early on, I went to try and find out what I was having at 19 weeks and it was still hard to tell. The technician said I should have waited an additional 3 or so weeks and the chances of seeing the sex would have been greater ( I had a regular ultraound)…Which is why I was confused as to how she knew so early on…. but the 4D ultrasound never crossed my mind as to being why!

    If you have a 4D ultrasound you can find out at about the 14-15 week point. A 4D ultrasound is often not covered by insurance, so most doctors don’t offer them.

    She seems to be pretty early to be able to find out what she is having? January 20th would only put her at 14 or so weeks? Here we are unable to find out the sex til 18+ weeks? weird!!
