Author and TV host Daphne Oz celebrated her 38th week of pregnancy with a nude Instagram selfie that featured plenty of baby bump.

“Well…we are very close now. 193 lbs. (so my doctor tells me—I don’t own a scale),” the 31-year-old mom-to-be wrote. “Definitively not all baby.”

“I have collages of each baby growing in my belly and try to write myself little reminders of what it felt like to know their movements and the excitement of holding them inside me before I got to know the actual people that would emerge,” she said.

To maintain some modesty, Oz strategically placed some doodles over her private areas. She explained that she “decided to share it with all of you because the female body is worth so much more than objectification, scrutiny, comparison, hatred…We do so much in this skin,” she continued. “We all have complex relationships with the history of how we get comfortable living in and owning it. Mine has been a long, winding journey forward and back and forward again. And then there are moments like this that are a perfect duality: heavy and light, exhausted and exhilarated, unrecognizable and yet distinctly me (plus someone else).”
