People Blast A Fitness Model Saying Her 7-Month Belly Bump Was Much Too Small

Date July 5, 2019

Pregnancy, like any other health-related experience, differs for every woman - and this includes bump size.

According to Dr. Kirkham, an obstetrician-gynecologist from Toronto, strong abdominal muscles mean a growing uterus is going to stay closer to the core of the body, making a bump appear smaller.

On the other hand, if core muscles have been stretched out from a previous pregnancy, then a bump may look larger.

Not all, however, know of this fact.

Australian fitness star Daegan Coyne has been facing some pretty nasty Internet trolling during her pregnancy.

The bodybuilder told her Instagram followers that she had been slammed for having a "small" baby bump at 30 weeks.

A whole army of Internet trolls seemed to be constantly checking and discussing if her baby bump was too large or too small.

Although the woman believed the comments weren't meant to be hurtful, she could not stand but post her response:

"Given I am yet to see one lady carry their pregnancy shape and size the same as another, I believe it's safe to assume peeps that there is no one size fits all pregnancy."

Coyne also noted that she doesn't think anyone actually knows what the "expected" pregnancy size really is:

"Bubba is in fact above average size for at 30 weeks, I am just good at hiding her."

- Coyne added.

Well, it seems that sometimes people need a friendly reminder that we should leave it to medical professionals to determine whether someone's pregnancy is going smoothly.

And, as Coyne says, that won't look the same for everyone. People should respect each other more.
