Naya Rivera's pregnancy is coming close to the end!

The 28-year-old Glee star has penned a new baby blog about her pregnancy pains.

"After months of changes, anticipation, and excitement it's finally here—the third trimester!" Rivera wrote today. "When I reached the final leg of my pregnancy, I was ecstatic. I could see the finish line and it felt so good. Sure, my back was on fire and I was tipping the scales at numbers I didn't think I could ever reach, but who cares?! WE'RE ALMOST DONE! Being in my third trimester means hard work is ahead and every day a new body part aches or seemingly falls apart. But it also comes with its share of really fun and exciting things too."

Rivera continued, "First on the list was a major baby prep, otherwise known as nesting. This is when your motherly instincts kick into high gear due to a cocktail of hormones causing you to become the master of almost any DIY project. I could be seen carrying almost everything we own out to the street to be thrown away. I needed less clutter and an entirely new decorating scheme, STAT."

Rivera says she's spent days prepping for her first child to arrive, adding that hubby Ryan Dorsey has been a big help.

"Once I came down from my nesting high, I turned my attention to the baby shower. A baby shower is one of those events that a girl dreams about her whole life, or at least I did," she added. "On a side note, let's be honest, baby gifts are the best! The absolute overload of cuteness that comes with baby clothes, gear, and toys is enough to make you forget that the heels you're wearing at the shower are leaving 2-inch deep indents in your skin. But seriously, I'm so grateful that not only is our baby already surrounded with so much love, but that we are fortunate and able to provide a great life for the little one. So hats off to all of the strong, powerful women and mothers in the world, baby or no baby, you're all amazing! And to all my third trimester mamas, we're almost there!!!"
