A pregnant mum has shared how much her baby bump grows over the course of the day, after she was trolled for her ‘tiny bump’.

Influencer Emma McVey, who is already a mum to one-year-old, Chester, with former Geordie Shore star, Gary Beadle, took to her Instagram to share a snap of her bump at 15-weeks.

“7am this morning and 7pm this evening…I’m definitely going to have a bump in this pregnancy,” she wrote online, showing the difference in her stomach over the course of the day.

Emma was trolled relentlessly through her first pregnancy with Chester, with people telling hero to ‘go and eat something’ online.

“Wtf there’s like no bump at all ,” one person said, while another said: “She’s got the tiniest baby bump ever.”

In an interview with OK! Magazine at the time, Emma said nurses in the hospital even commented on her baby bump.

“The staff couldn’t believe how small my bump was compared to the size of the baby,” she said.

This was my 12 week bump update ????????- no not much of a bump yet but definitely a little more round, and I’m sure I’ll pop a lot earlier second time around! I really regretted not documenting my bump in my pregnancy with Chester, more because I just couldn’t be bothered with the grief I got for being so small (crazy when you look at the size of him now ????). But I’ve decided no matter what size bump I have this time I’ll definitely be taking photos to look back on! Update – to be honest I’ve felt ABSOLUTELY horrendous, exhausted, sickness tablets, faint…I really struggled with the first trimester, and the fact you can’t rest that much with a wild toddler, work and house work to keep up to, makes it pretty hard ????

Did your bump frequently disappear? Share your comments below

  • Not ok to troll other people about their baby bump or body in general.


  • As long as baby’s healthy, everyone’s body is different


  • Does it really matter!! As long as she and the baby are healthy.


  • It looks like she’s leaning further back in the first photo.


  • My daughter could take a before and after pic like this with the same result after drinking a big glass of milk! She definitely looks too thin, I worry she’s healthy enough. I had a small baby bump first time round too, but not this tiny


  • She looks like she’s sucking it in a bit in the first pic and pushing it out a bit in the second. Who even cares what her bump looks like?


  • She’s gorgeous!
    I had a big bump all day and night long! HA. Ha!


  • She is very slim so I’d expect a bigger bump but I guess it shows how different we really all are!


  • Awh that’s really sweet! It’s crazy how differently our bodies can carry babies.
