“Pregnancy is such a beautiful, crazy, surreal, and interesting experience. This baby is already so loved and I want to thank you for all of the kind messages!” The Bachelorette star, 30, captioned the image cradling her growing belly.
She added: “It’s been a blessing to get to this point and start to see my baby grow but as we begin a new chapter to start our own family many women are fighting for theirs to begin and why I would like to acknowledge and #givegrace to those strong women struggling with infertility or loss. It may be you or someone you know but feel free to comment with names or what you’re believing for below so that I (and whoever is willing) can pray over them.

Last month, the reality star and husband Chris Siegfriedannounced their first pregnancy.
Just over a year after they were wed, the couple — who were made famous on the ninth season of The Bachelorette — discovered the news during a Valentine’s Day trip to Maui earlier this year.
“We have a bun in the oven and it’s not the warm pastry kind!” she captioned the baby bump debut photo. “We are beyond excited to share that we have a little one on the way!! A new chapter we are both looking forward to. #family #bump #blessed #babysiegfried #parentstobe #october //[Photography][email protected]
The pair tied the knot on January 18, 2015, in Palos Verdes, Calif., two years after Chris proposed to Desiree on the season finale of The Bachelorette.
