In another photo, the BiP alum soaked in some skin-to-skin contact with baby August, letting his son catch some shut-eye on his chest.

"So happy for you guys! ❤️❤️ ," Bachelor Nation's Adam Gottschalk, who is also expecting a baby boy with wife Raven Gates, commented on the sweet shots. "T-minus 60 days for us - right behind ya!!"

"I really never felt anxious throughout my pregnancy until I hit week 36," Loch wrote. "Once I hit that point, it felt like I was racing against time and every time I got something crossed off my to-do list I'd remember five more things I needed to do. These last two weeks especially have left me being not-so-pleasant to be around and I think a big part of that has been the realization that I'm officially losing control any day now."

She continued, "I'm so ready to meet our little one. To see their face for the first time, to find out if they're a boy or girl, to see Kevin finally get to touch and feel our baby the way I have been the last nine months. So yes, I'm scared to lose control but I know whatever awaits me on the other side will be so much better."
