As previously reported, Jacqueline Laurita is pregnant.
Viewers of last week's premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey understand why this is such big news: during the episode, Laurita and her husband, Chris Manzo, openly discussed their struggles to add to their family.
The hour included a visit to Jacqueline's doctor, where we learn she's had five miscarriages over the last seven years.
"I'm due early next month," Laurita told E! News this week. "I'm 50 pounds heavier. I'm ready to pop. I'm like Jiffy Pop."
The reality star and her doctors credit a daily baby aspirin and progesterone therapy for her successful pregnancy.
But while she's excited about the impending baby, Jacqueline isn't set on putting the birth on camera.
"There may have been talk about it, but we're not really sure," she says. "I don't know if I want people to see me like that."
