A woman has shared the incredible moment her baby bump completely changed shape, leaving other social media users convinced they knew if she’d be having a boy or a girl.
She wrote: “Exposing myself here. But what the f**k was my kid doing in there back then loool.”
The short seven-second clip shows the bottom of the bump protruding more than you might expect, before the top part suddenly jerks up to flatten it out slightly.
The way the baby was sitting in Elliyah-Jade's womb – and the manner in which it was moving about – led many other TikTok users absolutely convinced of the sex.
“Congratulations it’s a boy,” one wrote confidently, with another saying: “It’s def a boy.”
A third said: “I felt that. It’s a boy.”
Someone else said it was ‘100%’ a boy, while another added: “YOU’RE HAVING A BOY.”
But others took the opposite approach, with one saying: “It’s a girl.”
Another agreed: “I’m getting girl bump.”
However, the consensus seemed to be that the TikToker would be welcoming a boy.
Thankfully, it turns out Elliyah-Jade has actually already given birth, so was able to settle the debate once and for all.
In the comments section, the mum revealed: “Guys!!! I’ve had the baby... little boy.”
According to the NHS, you should start to feel your baby move between around 16 to 24 weeks of pregnancy, although if it is your first child, you may not feel movements until after 20 weeks.
The movements can feel like a 'gentle swirling or fluttering', and as your pregnancy progresses, you may feel 'kicks and jerky movements'.
"If you have not felt your baby move by 24 weeks, tell your midwife," the NHS website says.
"They'll check your baby's heartbeat and movements.
"You should feel your baby move right up to and during labour."
It adds that other people 'cannot feel your baby move as early as you can', explaining that being able to feel the movements by putting a hand on your bump is 'different for everyone'.
"There's no set number of movements you should feel each day – every baby is different," the NHS advises.
"You do not need to count the number of kicks or movements you feel each day.
"The important thing is to get to know your baby's usual movements from day to day."
