They had tried getting pregnant for a whole year before the happy news.

“I thought by this point I would be able to breathe and enjoy this pregnancy, but unfortunately that has not been the case.”

Difficulties began in her pregnancy when she started experiencing spotting and bleeding without explanation. After a trip to the doctors, Petta’s ultrasounds revealed no issue as doctors explained the issue was not fatal.

This was not the first struggle the couple experienced. D’Amico explained they had tried getting pregnant for a whole year before the happy news. This was a far contrast from their first child.
