Usually, people can tell when someone is carrying a baby but Nina Monzolevska (@ninamonzolevska) managed to leave her followers stunned, simply by turning to the side.
Nina, who was eight months pregnant when she filmed and uploaded the clip, said people say she doesn’t look like she’s carrying a baby at all.
“You don’t look eight months pregnant,” she captioned the video, quoting the comment she gets all the time.
Nina faces the camera at the start of the video before turning to the side and instantly unveiling her baby bump.
“How about now?” she quips in the video’s caption after the big reveal.
To say people were left feeling confused is an understatement.
Among the 60,000 comments, one person wrote: “My brain isn’t braining," while another replied: “Did my eyes just betray me.”
Another commenter wrote: “I am shook," as someone else joked: “What kind of magic is that.”
Baby bumps are not uniform in their shapes and sizes, and some may be bigger or smaller from one mum-to-be to another.
It is true that during the first pregnancy, baby bumps may seem smaller. This is because it may take a little longer for the uterus to move up and out of the pelvis, but during subsequent pregnancies, the abdominal has more ‘laxity’ which may lead to women showing a bump sooner, health.com reports.
The core muscles basically affect how far a baby bump comes out, and the mum’s weight and height could also lead to varying baby bump sizes.
Another mum on TikTok showed off her baby bump which led to accusations that she's 'faking it' because of her bump's size.
TikToker Kenzie (@kenzieakiko) shared a video of her baby bump just days before she gave birth, explaining: "Wish me luck baby is coming this week."
Kenzie explained she was feeling nervous due to the size of the baby. “POV: You realise you are having a baby the size of a small watermelon in a couple days and know your whohaa is definitely not that big," she wrote.
Kenzie later posted some follow-up videos, explaining she had given birth to her beautiful baby girl.
"My 9lb bundle of perfection," she wrote, adding: "Seriously have never been more proud of this body."
