More on "Teen Mom 2" 's Jenelle Evans' Pregnancy

Jenelle Evans is expecting her second baby and her husband, Courtland Rogers, shared her sonogram pictures exclusively with RadarOnline.com, saying that they hope that the baby is a girl!

“This is our baby to be,” the Teen Mom’s hubby gushed about the ultrasound photographs that Jenelle had taken on January 10, 2013.
(Note: For some reason the ultrasound pics on Radar's site are broken but all blurry "what the fuck am I looking at" sonogram pics look the same anyway so it doesn't matter)

“Jenelle is showing a little bit,” Courtland said about his pregnant wife.

“She looks so cute. She used to be a skinny 105 pounds but now she weighs 115 pounds and she has a cute little baby bump!”

As Star magazine exclusively reported, Jenelle is expecting her baby on September 4, and while she doesn’t know the sex of the baby yet, they’re hoping for a girl.

“Jenelle says she feels really different this time being pregnant so she thinks she’s having a girl,” Courtland revealed.

This baby will be the younger sibling of Jenelle’s son Jace Evans and his daughter JaJa. Neither of them currently have custody of their respective children.

Courtland said that he’s been taking care of his wife, who is having a rough first trimester.

“Jenelle has morning sickness, back pain and muscle pain all the time.”

The 21-year-old reality TV star and her hubby do have a name picked out, and they assure us it isn’t Ke$ha.

“We like the name Audriana, we’ve been saying that for a long time.”

Jenelle Might Lose Custody of New Baby

Jenelle Evans, 21, and new husband, Courtland Rogers, were surprised and elated to learn that the Teen Mom 2 star was six weeks pregnant, shortly after their Dec. 4 marriage.

But keeping custody of their new baby, after Jenelle Evans lost custody of her first son, Jace, now three, means that Jenelle’s behavior while pregnant, has to be exemplary
, celebrity family law attorney, Vikki Ziegler tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

“Jenelle needs to make sure that she gives no reason for her mother, Barbara Evans, who already has custody of Jace, to run to court and make a petition for custody,” says Ziegler.

“If Jenelle’s mother can prove to the court that she’s been doing drugs while pregnant, or if she hasn’t seen her first son, she has potential to win custody of the new baby.”

Of course, Jenelle is married now, and her husband, Courtland, would have the right of custody, but he also has a history of prescription drug abuse. “The grandmother can say that they’re both unfit,” warns Ziegler.

The problem for Jenelle is that it’s very hard in her home state of North Carolina for a mother to lose custody of a child in the first place. “Parents have a fundamental right to their children, and so there’s a high hurdle to lose custody,” explains Ziegler. “The fact that Jenelle did lose custody after a series of arrests for assault and drug possession, plus at least one stint in rehab, means she has to regain the court’s trust,” says Ziegler.

So what does Jenelle have to do to ensure that she retains custody of her new baby, due in September?

“She must stay off drugs, make repeated attempts to see her son, Jace, and also to see her husband’s daughter, Jordan (JaJa), 1. She needs to focus on the children who do exist, showing her maternal instincts. Plus, she must focus on her health and keep herself and her fetus out of harm’s way,” explains attorney Ziegler.

“All eyes will be on Jenelle while she’s pregnant,” says Ziegler. “She needs to be mom of the year while pregnant.”

Now, of course, she’ll have to stay on her best behavior after the baby is born, too, because her mother could go to court at any time. Her mom will undoubtedly be watching the whole situation closely.

But Jenelle, remember — the health of your baby is at risk, too, if you use any drugs — either recreational or prescription (if they’re not taken as prescribed by a physician). So keeping healthy while pregnant won’t just ensure that you retain custody of your baby, but also that you keep it healthy — something you undoubtedly want.

Good luck, Jenelle. What do you think, HollywoodLifers — will Jenelle keep custody of her new baby? Let me know!

So there you have it. I think that brings us up to date in everything going on right now. I really hope that for this baby's sake that she gets clean during the pregnancy but considering she doesn't really seem to care about Jace who knows if that will actually happen. This is going to be a messy few months, that's for sure.

And their health :[

If she's truly addicted to heroin, that baby is going to be fucked

I wonder how long she's known about the pregnancy. This article says she's 6 weeks but on Twitter she said she's 7. There are also claims that it was intentional to secure more money from magazines and MTV.

If they found out when she was six weeks along "shortly after" her wedding on December 4th, then she's probably around 11 weeks or so now.

I think they mean shortly after being now. She's said on Twitter that she's 7 weeks.

But she's due in September...

The whole 9 months pregnant thing is weird if you think about it. A full term pregnancy is 40 weeks so it's more like 10 months pregnant. September 4 is the 36th week of the year so it seems more like she is 4 weeks pregnant.

Though she prob wouldn't be showing by now...

The timing seems really weird on this.

O_o. No, it's not. A full term pregnancy is 39 to 40 weeks, which is exactly 9 months. There is 52 weeks in a year, and 12 months in a year. 52/12=4.3. There is 4.3 weeks on average a month, and 4.3x9 is 39 weeks exactly. A pregnancy is 9 months, give or take a few days.

By your math, the first 10 months of the year would have 4 weeks each (which... 4x7 days=28 days), and the last two months of the year would have to pack 6 weeks each.

ETA: The difference between 39 and 40 is because the 40 weeks are calculated from the date of the last period, but conception is about a week or two later than that, so pregnancy from conception to delivery is about 39 weeks.

also, the day you conceive you are already 2 weeks pregnant. it goes by the day of your last period, not the actual day it happens. so 38 week pregnancy = 36 weeks with fetus = 9 months.

Christ, that is so depressing. Maybe it's my evil pro-choice feminism talking, but in my opinion, it'd be best for everyone involved if those pregnancies were never brought to term :/

I agree.
emofordino 17th-Jan-2013 09:25 pm (UTC)
yeah, i would hope that her doctor would get her on subutex or something instead of methadone. :/
breadprincess 17th-Jan-2013 10:26 pm (UTC)
After her FB messages to Amy LaDawn leaked people think she's on Suboxone but not using it properly because she "ran out" and was begging Amy, who lives out of state, to send her some.

My friend's sister did heroin and meth for the first 4 months of her pregnancy. Then she spent a month and a half in jail, and the rest of her pregnancy on methadone. she is still taking it now, i believe, and the baby is almost 3 months old. the baby had to be kept in the hospital for 2 weeks after she was born to make sure she was okay. by some MIRACLE, the baby was completely healthy and didn't have anything in her system. it blows my mind honestly. /csb
i hope jenelle's baby will be healthy when he/she is born. :/
