Pregnant woman is teased about her "huge" belly: "other women targeted me in particular"
January 14, 2023
Coping with a pregnancy is never easy, we have to admit this fact. Not only do we have to deal with the changes that the choice of having a baby will bring to the family, but, especially for women, the 9 months of carrying a baby can be challenging. The body changes, there are ups and downs in terms of mood and it is not always possible to manage the ordeal. For these reasons then, one should be surrounded loved ones and get understanding from other people. So, it is too bad this doesn't happen all the time.
The young mother we want to tell you about here knows something about this, as she has had to deal with many web users who teased her about her pregnant tummy. Here is her story:
Eliana Rodriguez is a 29-year-old mom from Las Vegas, Nevada, who found herself in the spotlight due to her second pregnancy. If you are thinking that this is was a positive thing and that people on the web complimented her preganancy, you woudl be very wrong.
Instead, Eliana was teased because her pregnant tummy was very big and, for some on the web, disturbingly so. Obviously, this negative reaction left Eliana speechless. Comments posted to her social media accounts were cruel and upsetting.
It was true that Eliana's belly was very large, even though she was expecting only one child and everything was completely normal. In fact, a doctor had told her that the size of her belly was linked to her small stature, which accentuated the bump even more.
Eliana was initally very upset by the negative comments she received, for example: "I want to know if you have more than one baby in there" - or - "A belly this big is freakish" - and again - "I think you must be suffering a lot because of the size of that bump." And many other similarly nasty comments were received, especially from other women.
Fortunately, however, Eliana hasn't let herself become depressed by this criticism and teasing: on the contrary, she replied in a video that, yes, her belly is huge and she's proud of it.
What do you think of the nasty comments she received?
