At 36 weeks, Australian fitness fanatic Chontel Duncan has shocked her 195,000 followers with her super toned physique, similar to model Sarah Stage last year.

Duncan has been documenting her pregnancy journey on the social media sharing site and made headlines around the world when she shared an image of her with a friend, who was as far along as she was, to show how different women's bodies look during pregnancy. Her friend appeared heavily pregnancy, while Duncan has a tiny bump at 21 weeks.

The former Miss Universe Australia finalist said she might look fit, but she's still facing the same discomfort as others: "Boy do I feel pregnant, this tummy is massive, heavy, makes sitting up so difficult, rolling over in bed a funny task, trying my sneakers hard work & my back has its moments where it throbs," she wrote on Instagram.

BUMP UPDATE36 weeks... only 28 days to go Boy do I feel pregnant, this tummy is massive, heavy, makes sitting up so difficult, rolling over in bed a funny task, trying my sneakers hard work & my back has its moments where it throbs. It's exciting because these are all NEW signs & signs that mean Little D is almost here. I'm interested to know where my waters will break hahaha... (If they do) Imagine if they broke this weekend at the hens in the valley or next weekend at my challenge break up party in the city OR while training in front of my clients hehehe... would be hilarious!!!! As of next week I have been instructed to commence some useful techniques to help bring on labour; 1) have sex daily most hilarious convo 2) stimulate my nipples every time I use the bathroom 3) increase my raspberry leaf tablets to 6 per day Predictions are that I'll labour around 4hrs & push for 30mins... fingers crossed these predictions are correct, that just sounds like a dream come true!!! But we will just have to wait & see... Drugs... I plan to go gas if needed, defiantly no pethidine & epidural would be considered as an absolute last resort. I want to use the shower, exercise ball, stand as much as possible & play my music to help calm any nerves of needed. I've been doing collaborative care, which is private for all of my appointments & public for delivery, then private for all post natal appointments. The public system can (if I have a completely normal delivery) send me home within 6hrs of birth isn't that crazy to think... I could labour for 4hrs, rest for 6hrs and be at home all within 10hrs of my first active labour contraction. Watched USA "one born every min", made my husband & I get so excited. I'm defiantly going to ask to pull Little D out like Kortney Kardashian did lol & I hope to god I don't scream hahaha... I've officially gained...

BUMP UPDATE 35 weeks.... Only 35 days to go! The past week I've experienced on 2 occasions swollen calves & ankles (aka cankles) don't worry it's nothing serious, my blood pressure is spot on. It's purely part of my journey and due to Little D being so bloody low & engaged. Poor guy has not moved position eek, my core does not allow him the freedom to do somersaults, but thankfully this is a very good thing as he is in the perfect position for delivery. The doctors don't want him to move from this position. So I bought these cheap miracle socks from Big W (in the section where all the "as seen on tv" shit is sold, and if I wear them with my feet up, the fluid literally disappears. They clearly are miracle socks lol We shot with the very talented Melanie @captured_dreams_by_melanie & as beautiful as her work is I still had my doubts in whether I could pull off shots like what I see in her portfolio. No doubt Mel knew exactly how to position us, where the best angles, lighting etc were & we could not be more OBSESSED with the images we have seen so far. Guys I know this is defiantly not your cup of tea, BUT let me assure you, it's very special, Mel wouldn't shoot you looking uncomfortable or awkward, it was an amazing experience for my husband and I to connect more & these memories we will forever cherish. Hands down DO IT!!!! My baby shower was on Sunday & it was absolutely PERFECT from the venue @rainforestgardens, the food (thanks Mum & Aunty Ann), the decorations & games (thanks girls), the music (thanks Erin & Sam), the cake/cupcake tower (thanks @miss_kate_xox), the Event letters (@eventletters) & of course all my friends and family for coming Little D was absolutely spoilt ROTTEN! My husband and I chose to open the gifts together at home so we could fill in my Kiki book on who got what so we could thanks each for their kind wishes and gifts. I have to say it was a day I won't forget. I'm still training each day as much as I can, nutrition is still the same no weird changes have happened & my OB appointments are now weekly YAY!!! Tonight we have our last Antenatal Class, man do I... CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO TO READ FURTHER
