Lisa Ling says she has slowed down now that she’s seven months pregnant.
The journalist – who is expecting her first child with Paul Song – told The Huffington Post, “Every single day I have been asked whether or not I’m slowing down. The answer is “Yes, absolutely!” I know I’ll have to reduce travel enormously. But not a single person has asked my husband! Even though I’m seven months along, because I’ve miscarried, I’m still nervous every day. I’m constantly feeling my stomach to make sure she’s moving.”
She continued, “She’s really active, so it’s like, “Is she moving, is she moving today?” You live in these months of fear. There is just so much more pressure on women. I’ve gained more of an appreciation for all of the challenges women have to deal with: pregnancy, fertility, juggling what’s professional and personal.”
The 39-year-old also added that she and her husband considered adopting.
“I honestly never had the biological need to reproduce until I met my husband. But by the same token, even if we were unsuccessful, we were totally ok with adopting. We feel lucky we’ve been able to conceive, and hopefully we will be able to have this baby. We also firmly believe there are so many kids in this world who need homes. We have always talked about adopting.”
As for what she’s craving these days it’s usually yogurt.
She revealed, “I’m eating a lot more now that I’m pregnant and my husband is loving it because he has such a voracious appetite. I swear this is his favorite time of being married to me. But what’s one thing I can’t live without right now? I have to have my plain yogurt with my Nectresse every single morning.”
