‘Already having mum hate come at me because of the size of my belly? Like there is a “right” or “normal’ size to be?’

She said all expectant mums had different bodies and that they will each show and carry their baby differently to one another.

‘I think EVERY pregnant belly is beautiful no matter what, and something we should all be uplifting and embracing with each other, [being] pregnant is literally a miracle and so special,’ the influencer wrote. 

She noted that she’s received countless comments and messages from trolls who have called her ‘stupid, silly, dramatic’ and for ‘holding my belly when I don’t have one.’
