She also said that her son had a feeling she was pregnant before she even knew she was with child.
She was laying in bed watching TV when a Clear Blue commercial came. Her son said, ‘Hey Mommy, you should order one of those in case there’s a baby in your belly.’
‘I was like, “How rude! I just ate a big dinner. What is he talking about?” It stuck with me, and they’ve been asking off and on for a year or so for a sibling. We weren’t closed off to the idea, it just wasn’t something that we were actively thinking about,’ said Jennifer.
