Pregnant Woman Responds To Trolls Calling Her Baby Bump ‘Too Small’

There’s nothing worse than hearing about trolls harassing yet another woman about her natural body shape. It’s 2016, you guys,can’t you find any other hobbies? I hear macrame is really fun and time consuming, so maybe start there.

The latest woman to be on the receiving end of a bunch of annoying troll banter isfitness model Daegan Coyne, who was called out for having “too small” of a baby bump. Every other day, youhearabout more nitwits giving pregnant ladies flak for appearing too big, too muscular or too thin.

Somehow, these jerks still don’t get that all bodies are different — especially pregnant ones. And, frighteningly, some trolls are going so far as to share pictures of expecting moms on porn sites without their knowledge.

But enough is enough and Daegan Coyne is not about to back down. At seven months pregnant and perfectly healthy, the model and fitness guru snapped back at the haters with a powerful message. In an Instagram post, she wrote,

I have had pregnant friends called out for being ‘too big,’ others ‘far too muscly,’ and myself, the ‘you’re way too small.Given I am yet to see one lady carry their pregnancy shape and size the same as another, I believe it’s safe to assume peeps that there is no ‘one size fits all’ pregnancy.

Spoken like a true body image hero.Hopefully the haters will take this as a sign to finally stand down (thoughdon’t go holding your breath).

Surrogate Motherhood: Redefining the Modern Family [Insights] | Elite Daily

This Mother’s Day, let’s give a heartfelt shoutout to all of the surrogates who have stepped forward to give the gift of family.

The concept of incubating a human life in your body and then giving it away to someone else was difficult for me to grasp at first — this idea of the severance of the primordial bond between mother and child. And that’s one issue the people who protest surrogacy claim in their arguments.

I also didn’t realize that a woman could have a baby who was not at all genetically related her. This is called gestational surrogacy, a common type of surrogacy that women enter.

Jenna Mancuso is a 30-year-old dental assistant from Pennsylvania who lives with her husband, Phil, and her three kids. She recently gave birth to twin babies for an intended father, Michael Oppedisano, who is a dentist living in Texas.

Jenna was a gestational surrogate, “Gestational surrogacy uses In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to create an embryo using the ova/eggs from the prospective mother or donor and sperm from the father or donor that is then implanted in a surrogate.”

Jenna describes the feeling of disassociation, “It’s a total disconnect, like the ultrasounds. I look at them and think ‘aww they’re cute’ but not like how it is emotional when it’s your own baby and it’s so amazing and like ‘oh my God it’s my baby on the screen!'”

Jenna and her husband, Phil, decided to go into surrogacy after Jenna was “feeling the urge to be pregnant again.” Jenna freely admits she enjoys the pregnancy and that the process comes easily for her. The sad reality is that many people struggle with infertility and this is a way surrogates can give back.
