These Two Women Show How Different Pregnancies (and Baby Bumps) Can Be

We all have that one mom-to-be friend -- the one who has glowing skin, thick, glossy hair, and a baby bump that looks perfectly natural -- that makes pregnancy look like it's the easiest, most beautiful experience in the world. And then there are plenty of other moms who deal with adult acne, swollen limbs, and excess weight that seems to come out of nowhere.

But every mom-to-be's belly is special because no two baby bumps are exactly alike. Soon-to-be mom and fitness instructor Chontel Duncan proved this point by sharing a photo that shows just how different two pregnancies at similar stages can really be.

Chontel and her friend, Nat, posed for a photo to show the beauty in every pregnancy. Both about five months along, Chontel with her first child and Nat with baby #3, the two friends demonstrate that even at just four weeks apart, two baby bumps can look completely different!

The fitness instructor and soon-to-be new mom writes, "Each [woman] carries different and this most certainly doesn't mean one is doing something wrong or not healthy etc. We both have healthy growing babies & we both have had incredible pregnancies so far, feeling amazing & full of energy."

So, what can we learn from this? Love your bump! Every pregnancy, woman, and body is different. Embrace the bump you have, do what works for you, and bring healthy babies into the world. (That's all that really matters, anyway.)
