This Woman's Baby Bump Snaps Have Gone Viral
One woman is taking the internet by storm with her baby bump photographs.
Chontel Duncan – a fitness model from Australia – has been documenting her pregnancy on Instagram and the snaps have got people talking.
That’s because, despite being 36 weeks pregnant, she still has abs!
Of course, it is important to note that Chontel owns a fitness studio down under and has decided to continue with intensive training throughout her pregnancy.
BUMP UPDATE ? 36 weeks... only 28 days to go ? Boy do I feel pregnant, this tummy is massive, heavy, makes sitting up so difficult, rolling over in bed a funny task, trying my sneakers hard work & my back has its moments where it throbs. It's exciting because these are all NEW signs & signs that mean Little D is almost here. I'm interested to know where my waters will break hahaha... (If they do) Imagine if they broke this weekend at the hens in the valley or next weekend at my challenge break up party in the city OR while training in front of my clients hehehe... would be hilarious!!!! As of next week I have been instructed to commence some useful techniques to help bring on labour; 1) have sex daily ? most hilarious convo 2) stimulate my nipples every time I use the bathroom ? 3) increase my raspberry leaf tablets to 6 per day ? Predictions are that I'll labour around 4hrs & push for 30mins... fingers crossed these predictions are correct, that just sounds like a dream come true!!! But we will just have to wait & see... Drugs... I plan to go gas if needed, defiantly no pethidine & epidural would be considered as an absolute last resort. I want to use the shower, exercise ball, stand as much as possible & play my music to help calm any nerves of needed. I've been doing collaborative care, which is private for all of my appointments & public for delivery, then private for all post natal appointments. The public system can (if I have a completely normal delivery) send me home within 6hrs of birth ? isn't that crazy to think... I could labour for 4hrs, rest for 6hrs and be at home all within 10hrs of my first active labour contraction. Watched USA "one born every min", made my husband & I get so excited. I'm defiantly going to ask to pull Little D out like Kortney Kardashian did lol & I hope to god I don't scream hahaha... I've officially gained...

Whilst many are praising her healthy lifestyle and acknowledge that every pregnancy is different, others have questioned her decision.
In response, Chontel told Us Weekly exclusively: “People think I’m harming my baby… and that I’m all about staying skinny and not nourishing my little D.
“I know it’s hard to believe that someone can carry a child the way I am, but in reality, a lot of women carry like me.”
I was surprised with a cute visit today from a friend Nat who is also expecting ? Just being able to see someone in the flesh, rub her tummy, hear how incredible her journey has been so far, how healthy baby is & all the fun talk about kicks, food, names etc was beautiful. This is Nat's 3rd pregnancy so she had a lot of great advice to share ☺️ It's very clear in this photo just how tall I am, I mean my chin sits above Nat's head lol We worked out that we are 4 weeks apart, so our little ones will be the same age, same grade at school and potential best buds hehehehe..... Nat's due start of March & I'm due end of March. Each women 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. #21.5weeks #expecting #march2016 #pregnant #love #happiness #Babyduncan

She also explained that she is over six-feet tall and her core is very strong, hence why she has managed to stay toned.
The above snap shows Chontel and her friend Nat who is only four weeks further along while the one below shows the fitness expert with her husband Sam.
The couple are reportedly set to welcome a baby boy at the end of March.
