“The thought of going into labor scared the bejeezus out of her,” a friend tells the mag. “She was so anxious, she was even breaking into cold sweats at night.”
Though a C-section is a fairly invasive procedure, according to In Touch, Jessica ultimately decided it was the best option. “Jessica has no tolerance for pain,” the friend tells the weekly magazine. “She even turned to hypnotherapy to calm her fears about it, but nothing was working.”
“She desperately wanted to experience the joy of a natural birth, but decided to go with what made the most sense for her."
We'll have to wait for the baby to arrive to find out for sure!
In Touch revealed earlier that Jessica and Eric plan to name their daughter Maxwell, after Eric’s grandfather. But just in case having a boy’s name might be traumatic for the little youngster, they plan on calling her “Maxi” for short.
There’s no possible way she could ever get teased on the elementary school playground for having a name like that... right?
