Three-month pregnant model with small baby bump fights back against body-shaming

‘As you can see, women show very differently but are all carrying a little life,’ she wrote on her page.

‘Just because I’m not showing as much as you like doesn’t mean my pregnancy is “unhealthy” or that I’m promoting a “skinny” pregnancy.

‘It’s just my body and I can’t help it if it doesn’t look the same as other women. Body shaming is not okay no matter how “big” or “small” someone is.’

She also uploaded a picture of herself after ‘violently throwing up’ on a train. She told her followers she wanted to show the side she didn’t normally show on her Instagram page.

‘I did experience morning sickness, breast pain and definitely a lot of anxiety on the beginning because of the fear of miscarriage – I had no idea how common they were,’ said Belle.

‘But I’ve learnt to embrace everything – both the downs and the ups.’

After she initially announced her pregnancy at 12 weeks, Belle said people were quick to doubt it because of her petite size.

When she uploaded a video of an ultrasound, she quickly deleted it as people were being ‘rude and creepy’ about it.

In a new Story she said she’s feeling the baby kick now and is craving chilli and strawberries.
