We're really interested to see what you think of these week-by-week bump photos, shared on Instagram by Australian fitness model – and now new mum – Chontel Duncan.
We're a bit 'hmm, not sure' about them here in the MFM office. And here's why...
On the one hand, it's always fascinating, isn't it, to see someone else's 'bump journey', even when her body type is a million miles away from the most of the likes of us?
On the other hand, it's maybe a bit dispiriting to see these pics, shared with the implicit assumption that all of us should be as toned as she is when we're pregnant?
But what do you think? We'd LOVE to know how these pics make you feel, especially if you're heavily pregnant right now.
Please do share your feelings with us by adding a post to this thread. Thank you!

I agree with you, it's unrealistic for many average woman, I can imagine young teenagers trying to be like this and try so hard it could danger their unborn baby and themselves.=\

Thanks Charrz91. Anyone else agree - or disagree?
I have to say, I can't stop looking at them!

I don't think there's anything wrong with the photos whatsoever .. Why should a fit and healthy woman not feel comfortable posting photos of her pregnancy journey ? We all have different sized bodies and everyone's quite to defend someone who is overweight with the confidence to posy photos, yet someone who is for and healthy with the same confidence takes an online beating. It's not fair - every woman has the right to enjoy her beautiful journey through pregnancy.
