A mom has gone viral after posting a photo with her huge belly carrying triplets. Michella Meier-Morsi has gone viral after posting a photo with her huge belly carrying triplets.
However, she admits that her bump left her in severe pain’. She was labelled ‘a superhero’ by fellow mothers. She shared her regular bump with over 250k, but a video posted on TikTok is what made her explode on social media.
The video, which showed Michella holding her pregnant belly, was captioned, “One more reason for people to respect all mothers.” The video has been viewed more than 100 million times and re-shared by world-famous personalities on TikTok.
“It’s wild how some babies grow straight out like that as opposed to up and down,” a person commented.
“I have no words, but respect!” another one wrote.
“I’m speechless! You, my dear, are a SUPER HERO!” a third commenter wrote.
Before she went into labour, Michella admitted on an Instagram post that she felt “extreme pain” and was “overwhelmed” to know she would soon welcome triplets into the world. She described her birth as the “wildest 36 hours” of her life on January 16th, but she wrote: “The birth went much better than feared—I got it bad along the way, but it was not nearly as bad as last time.”
She shared a photo of her stomach 10 days postpartum, saying it had “already become significantly smaller” but was “heavy and incredibly painful”. “The last few days, the stomach has felt like a big black mark; it even hurts to breathe,” Michella said, adding that it would “be exciting and nerve-racking to see how my body plans to heal”.
Pregnancy will look and feel different on every woman, factoring in whether it’s their first pregnancy, composition, or multiple babies that’ll impact the size of the belly.
Diastasis recti is a common condition in pregnant and postpartum people. It occurs when the rectus abdominis muscles (six-pack ab muscles) separate during pregnancy from being stretched. The separation can make a person’s belly stick out or bulge months or years postpartum.
Obstetrics and gynaecology Associate Professor Jessica Kiley at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine told Health.com: “Pregnant women always feel like they look bigger or smaller than their friend, sister, or neighbour.”
“It’s our job as doctors to explain that what’s normal for them might not appear normal for other women.”
She welcomed her sons Charles, Theodore, and Gabriel on January 16th.
She also posted an image of her stomach ten days after welcoming her boys.
And here’s how she looks two and a half months after pregnancy. We wish them all happiness and joy on their journey!
