Alex Gonzaga preparing body for pregnancy: 'Claiming it this year'

Alex Gonzaga revealed she's getting ready to try for a baby again with her husband Mikee Morada.

The content creator gave a life update on her Instagram broadcast channel on Tuesday, Feb. 20. "Came from my immunology doctor," she wrote.

"Prepping my body for pregnancy!" she continued. "Claiming it this year."

According to medical website WebMD, immunology doctors treat health issues that stem from immune system problems. There are also specialists who focus on both the immune system and reproductive system in particular to see how they interact during pregnancy.

In October last year, Alex opened up about suffering her second miscarriage—two years after experiencing her first one in October 2021. 

In a November interview with her sister, Toni Gonzaga, she revealed that their second attempt at pregnancy was done through IVF. She said she took inspiration from former US First Lady Michelle Obama, who decided to count on surrogacy for her two pregnancies after losing a baby via miscarriage. 

Alex, in the same month, said that while sharing one's motherhood journey "is never easy because it brings back all the pain and feeling of loss," receiving messages from aspiring mothers who have gone through the same thing gives her hope to keep going.

"Thank you for making me feel that I am never alone, that beyond the love and support of my family, I have your kind words to give me comfort and strength," she said.

"One day, and by God’s grace and infinite goodness, we will have our rainbow baby," she added.

Alex tied the knot with Mikee in November 2020.
