Although the women are only 4 weeks apart in their pregnancies, the difference in their pregnant bellies is amazing. It’s a perfect demonstration of how different women’s bodies can be during pregnancy, and how all shapes and sizes are beautiful.

In the photo’s caption, Chontel wrote, “Each woman carries differently and this most certainly doesn’t mean one is doing something wrong or not healthy.” The important thing, she notes, is that they are both healthy. “We both have healthy growing babies and we both have had incredible pregnancies so far,” she wrote.

Chontel has received some criticism for exercising while pregnant, though doctors state that this is generally perfectly safe. The backlash is actually what inspired her to continue to post photos of her pregnancy.

In an interview with Today Parents, Chontel said, “Once it became clear to me (through my social media posts) how foreign it was to see a pregnancy performed like mine, it did get me thinking, ‘Maybe I should continue to document my pregnancy because it seems that we are misled to believe that we are more fragile than we really are.’” We love her inspiring message!
