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.

Pregnant woman belly size

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.’

‘Triplets??’

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!

  • That’s amazing.
    I had stupid comments throughout my first pregnancy.
    I was so big with my second that people were asking ‘any day now’ at 6/7 months

  • I was big with my son and being asked few times if I am carrying twins….was quite upsetting

  • People need to realise that it is not just one typical shape to a pregnant tummy.. my belly looked nothing like my sisters or other women I’d seen. Some are bigger, smaller, some carry high, others low.. I can’t go onto social media sometimes because of how people talk to eachother.

  • People can be so nasty these days. If they don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

  • Everyone is different with their pregnancy. I tend to keep my mouth shut as know how disheartening comments can be.

  • Pregnant Mums all show in different ways. One Mum I knew couldn’t get people to believe she was 8 months pregnant when she had no bump showing and another Mum started getting a bump at 7 weeks pregnant. It’s all to do with where & how your baby is laying. I just hope that her back isn’t aching too much.

  • Every woman’s body responds and grows differently.

  • She is putting herself out there to be criticised and comments made that could be degrading or offensive. Looking at the size of her stomach will draw attention.

  • I too was quick large and I was told I looked like a beached whale , but I just took it in my stride. I was just over the moon to be pregnant. I think all that matters here is that she has a healthy happy baby.

  • I lost weight during pregnancy due to 24/7 morning sickness, but produced a 9lb/4 kilo baby. There was nothing funny about any of it.


    • Poor you, that must have been awful. But wow that is amazing your baby had such a healthy weight !

  • No, they mostly wanted to touch it, and i was also self conscious about taking any photos with my pump… .Why post on the internet though. Unfortunately most people behind their keyboards will say a lot of hurtful things.

  • I wouldn’t comment personally to her, but if I myself were that big with one baby I’d want my dr to check everything was okay.

  • I was big and had trouble and if I could fit a wheelbarrow under my stomach to help me walk. Then after I had the baby people thought I was pregnant and had to keep wearing maternity cloths for months.

  • She is kind of putting herself out there a little……There will always be people who respond in ways that we may feel offended. I personally wouldn’t find the comments offensive, but we’re all different.

  • On one hand I wanna say, if you put things on the internet you HAVE to expect people to comment. You can’t post and expect everyone to be kind and then complain when they aren’t! On the other hand there really isn’t any need for them to say what they said. I personally don’t care what people say. With my first I went from “are you sure you are pregnant?” For the first 7 months to “omg! You poor thing” at 7 months. I carried my first so very low that when I did show people thought I had dropped already. With my second there was no hiding that I was pregnant. People I just met knew before we were telling anybody. It happens. I guess maybe pregnancy hormones play a role in how we react. But honestly it’s just words that carry no weight at all
