“I’ve been craving beer,” Lima, 30, told PEOPLE Wednesday at the IWC Schaffhausen watch boutique opening in New York.
“It’s very strange because I normally don’t like beer. Now I want some but I cannot drink it. It’s been very hard!”
Foregoing a cold pint of beer, the Brazilian beauty has still been able to indulge a bit.
“I’ve been craving crispy duck,” she said. “All of a sudden I cannot get enough of it. It’s amazing.”
“It’s definitely easier than the first time, maybe because I know exactly what I’m going to go through. I’m very relaxed and have a lot of energy.”
Lima credits her husband, former basketball player Marko Jaric, for motivating her to exercise during the pregnancy and not to completely give into her cravings.
“I’ve gained a few pounds, but not as much as the first pregnancy — thanks to my husband,” Lima, whose workout regimen also includes boxing, says. “For the first three months I exercised with light weights and did workouts that were inspired by animal movements, like crab-walking on the floor. It really helped me tone my muscles.”
As she enters her third trimester, Lima is all prepared for the arrival of her new addition – though she wants to keep the baby’s sex a surprise. “We still don’t know, and it keeps it exciting,” she said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl as long as it’s healthy and everything goes well.”
