From Dancing with the Stars to The Bachelor, Melissa Rycroft is no stranger to shocking news. But the mom-to-be has possibly the biggest surprise of her life waiting: finding out the sex of her baby.

“We got our first report, got all excited and then we went back a few weeks later and it was a conflicting report,” the Bachelor Pad host said at the Juno Baby Celebrity Launch in New York City. “We’re not sure, hopefully in the next week or two we’ll get 100 percent confirmation.”

And the upcoming arrival – due in February – isn’t the only thing Rycroft has to look forward to. She recently moved to a new Dallas home with husband Tye Strickland and is already taking time for her baby.

“It’s still crazy for me to be entering this world of ‘Mommywood,’ ” she said. “It’s exciting and it’s surreal and it’s a fun new world to be in.”

Another thing besides work that’s taking a backseat? Rycroft’s rigorous workouts. “It’s limiting what you can do,” she said of being pregnant. “The kiddo definitely tells you when they’re tired and when they don’t want you to work out.”

Meanwhile, Strickland has been doing whatever he can to make his baby’s mama as comfortable as possible with back and foot rubs. He’s also good at giving sweet compliments. Says Rycroft: “He tells me I look skinny every day!”
