I was trolled for my titchy baby bump… people say I just looked a little bloated even hours before having him | The Sun

FROM extreme swelling to the obvious baby bump, most mums-to-be experience significant changes in their appearance during pregnancy.

However, one woman revealed her bump was so small that people were questioning her, with some saying she looked just a little bloated.


Monya Bester, from South Africa, shared the pregnancy journey on TikTok, documenting how her belly was changing.

In the now-viral video, which has racked up over 75,000 views, the mum uploaded snaps of her posing in front of the mirror throughout the nine months.

The changes between Week 7 and Week 35, when her baby son, Reilan, was born, were so small, people chuckled saying even their bloated belly is bigger.

''Small bump, ginormous amount of love,'' Monya wrote in the caption.

Although there are many possible explanations behind the titchy bump, Monya's doctor thought it might've had something to do with her athlete's background.

Answering all the questions in comments, the mum said it was ''possible tilted uterus from sports injuries'', as well as genetics.

A smaller bump might be dream for some women, but Monya said it had more cons than pros.

Often questioned by others, the mum found herself ''constantly justifying'' her pregnancy, having no maternity photos, being called a liar.
