First, Luca and I want to say a huge thank you for the outpouring of love and support from our announcement!! ???? I know you guys have so many questions so I’ll answer a few for you now ???? . Yes, we did IVF. We did the transfer back in November and didn’t tell anyone ???????? and to my complete shock, it worked!!! I was so prepared to get yet another negative test. I will be forever grateful to @scrcivf and my doctor @bheggfreezemd. They took such amazing care of me and I will be sharing the entire IVF transfer process on YouTube. So stay tuned! . We do not know the gender. @scrcivf does!! ???? We could have found out, but we decided not to and instead to choose to transfer the “best” embryo, regardless of gender. We also could have found out via blood test by now, but I truly, truly am in no rush to know. It will make no difference to me. Luca on the other hand ????… he is itching to find out but we will likely wait until March. . I’m 12 weeks 5 days today, and my due date is August 7th. And the first trimester has NOT been easy. I’ve actually been on light bedrest this entire time, so I have not been working out with the exception of a few sessions when I was temporarily cleared, then put back on bedrest again. But I just got cleared again on Monday!! ???? . What other questions do you guys have? Comment below and Luca and I can answer them for you in our next YouTube video!! ???????? #12weekspregnant #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/fitbodyapp . Photo: @brethurston

The couple was given the option to choose the gender of their baby during the IVF process but instead opted to go with the “best” embryo. They have yet to find out found the gender. 

“I truly, truly am in no rush to know. It will make no difference to me,” she said. “Luca on the other hand … he is itching to find out but we will likely wait until March.”

While she is thrilled about the news, Anna hasn’t had the easiest first trimester. “I’m 12 weeks 5 days today, and my due date is August 7th. And the first trimester has NOT been easy,” she revealed on Instagram.

“I’ve actually been on light bed rest this entire time, so I have not been working out with the exception of a few sessions when I was temporarily cleared, then put back on bed rest again. But I just got cleared again on Monday!!”

Understandably, the expecting mama is still feeling anxious about her pregnancy. “It still doesn’t seem real!” she admitted in an Instagram story, according to People.

“It hasn’t felt real, this entire time. The only time it felt real is when I’m doing ultrasounds. It’s been a little hard to really enjoy it because I’ve been just constantly been worried that it’s not going to continue, but I feel like announcing it is going to make it even more real. And I’m hoping to start to get to the excited phase, I think this is just a byproduct of infertility and struggling.”

Currently, Victoria is in her second trimester. And although she knows getting to 14 weeks is a huge milestone, she admits she’s still “obsessing” of the little things. “I still can’t help but obsess over how I’m feeling (or not feeling..) and how my belly has pretty much gone down halfway from what it was a few weeks ago.”

She then asked the question, “how to not obsess over all these little details??? Asking for a friend.”
