“38 weeks tomorrow!!!!!” the reality star, 26, captioned a Tuesday, February 19, Instagram post, featuring a screenshot from a pregnancy tracking app. “It’s getting so close! I’m beyond anxious to meet her and hold her!!!! #momofgirls #blessed.”
Although Lowell revealed one day prior to the Instagram upload that her due date is March 6, she started having contractions on Wednesday, February 13. “Not contractions that take my breath away but she really wants to come soon!” the MTV personality wrote at the time. “But I could also be like this for dayyysss so we shall see what she wants to do lol!”
The Michigan native gave her fans an update the next day, writing, “Nope she’s not here yet! She will come when she’s ready!! Obviously she already likes to mess with momma.”
“We were going to wait a really long time,” Lowell told Us. “We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected.”
The middle school sweethearts, who tied the knot in 2015, placed their eldest daughter, Carly, now 9, for adoption in 2009, welcoming Novalee, 4, six years later. The couple revealed in December 2018 that their third baby girl will be named Tezlee.
“We were looking at names and we were just writing it down and I don’t know … I saw Lesley and I’m like, ‘No, not Lesley.’ It’s kinda weird. We just put different words together, letters together,” Baltierra told Us at the time. “We wanted to keep Lee in there ’cause [of our daughter] Novalee, so we just played around with it and then Tezlee [came up].”
He added: “I sent Cate a whole list of different names, of ones that I looked at, saw or kind of combined myself and she took that one!”
