First showing followers what her belly looked like when she was resting on her back, the TikTok creator added the caption: "My bump not looking that big laying down..."

But when Sharmina rose to her feet, viewers watched her stomach seriously expand. What a transformation!

Taking to the comments, other pregnant TikTokers reassured Sharmina that she wasn't alone.

"I thought it was just me lol," commented one viewer.

"Thought I was the only one 😅 same sis same" added a second.

Another expecting mum wrote: "I don’t have a bump at all when I lay down and I'm 36 weeks 😭"

Other viewers were surprised that Sharmina was able to lie on her back at all during her pregnancy.

"I give you credit laying like that I couldn’t breath" commented one viewer.

Another said: "I seriously can’t sleep like that 😪"

Earlier this week, we told you about another mum-to-be on TikTok who revealed what 'false labour' contractions really looked like.

TikTok creator @5thbabybump has been documenting her pregnancy on the video-sharing app, and got viewers talking about Braxton Hicks when she recorded her womb contractions.

Braxton Hicks are a totally normal part of pregnancy that usually occur on a woman's second or third trimester.

The 'false labour' contractions tightens muscles across the belly and makes the uterus feel hard.

Many pregnant viewers took to the comment section to share their own experience with Braxton Hicks, complaining that the contractions were quite painful.

Other viewers were eager to reassure other mums that the best way to avoid Braxton Hicks pain is to drink lots of water.
