Mom Reveals She Left 'Pregnancy Belly' at Home As She Barely Shows at 9 Months

A woman on TikTok's pregnancy belly has garnered a lot of attention owing to the fact it was barely noticeable.

Posting to the app under the account name The Harris Family, the Australian woman, who gave birth to a little boy, shared how her body evolved during the nine months she was carrying.

However, in the photomontage of herself—which has attracted 4.2 million views—we barely see a bump protruding, even on the day she delivered.

From the six months to nine months mark, the mother's belly looks as if she maybe ate too much bread, but that is it.

The video, which can be watched here, is captioned: "Well that was a flop! I must have left my pregnancy belly at home #pregnancy #pregnant #hiddenpregnancy #crypticpregnancy #babybump #bump #bumpdate #momsoftiktok #mom #mum #mumsoftiktok #fy #fyp #foryou #trending #viral #notajoke."

The clip has gained lots of traction online since it was shared on February 1, having attracted more than 359,900 likes and nearly 5,000 shares.

Many people also rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the woman's small bump.

One TikTok user, Layla Harb, wrote: "I look like this and I'm not pregnant."

Another person, Victoria Maree, added: "I'm not pregnant and look more pregnant than you did on delivery day babah."

Lay remarked: "There's no way."

J stated: "And I'm here looking pregnant for no reason."

Andrea Kershaw typed: "I have to ask!! When the baby bump is like this, do you still get the difficulty of turning over, bending and all that pregnancy stuff?"

CamsMom4921 explained: "Omg this is unreal! I wish I looked like this while instead I was cursed with stretch marks and 30 extra lbs."

Amber Jayne admitted: "Everyone saying your gods favorite, your the lucky one. I disagree, I also don't have a bump yet at 28 weeks pregnant. It's all I want."

Manda asked: "Were you questioned at the labor and delivery?" To this, The Harris Family responded: "I was questioned at every appointment. I always had to justify my due date haha."

Many people do not have large pregnancy bumps and this can be due to many factors including your height, size, position of the baby and core muscle strength.

According to Babycenter.com: "First-time moms usually don't start to notice a bump until they're around at least 16 weeks pregnant—for many moms-to-be, it can be even later than that."

Additionally if you do have a bump before that then chances are it is "just the result of pregnancy bloating, or they're your bowels being pushed up and out of your pelvis as your uterus expands."
