Don’t ever ask a pregnant woman if she’s only expecting one baby. Just don’t. It’s rude, and expecting mums aren’t really in the mood for ridiculous questions.
Now that you’ve listened to my Ted Talk, I’ll tell you the tale of a gorgeous pregnant mumma, who is only expecting one baby, but has had to fend off constant remarks about the size of her belly. Again – not on.
She’s taken to TikTok to show off her beautiful bump, and to educate the general public on how NOT to talk to a pregnant woman.
Renae W is pregnant with her rainbow baby and has four children, and she uses her TikTok account to share all things family and pregnancy. She recently uploaded a video of her bare belly, and some of the comments were vicious.
‘Wowza you make my baby fever get cold real quick. Thanks for that phew,’ wrote Holly.
Some of the other comments included:
‘No way that’s one baby.’
‘Twins or a baby giant.’
‘You got like 4 in there.’
It prompted Renae to reply to the savage comments. “It is not ok to comment on another woman’s pregnancy post when you’re pregnant and say, ‘You must be having seven!’, because you’re not even showing,” she said.
“That would be like me posting on your page, ‘You need to go eat!’. I mean seriously. What the f**k is wrong with people?”
Renae also responded with a tongue-in-cheek video, which has since been viewed more than two million times.

She also checked in with an update, explaining that her most recent ultrasound showed her baby boy is measuring a week and four days ahead.
Renae says she’s only gained around 16kg, and that she’s ‘all belly’. “No I don’t have gestational diabetes, I have big babies. Can we normalise that big bumps don’t been multiple babies?”
We can’t help but agree!
