Maternity bellies come in all shapes and sizes. Some moms’ bodies change minimally, others undergo a real revolution. It was similar in the case of Kevy Denee, who admitted that Internet users compared her belly to… a watermelon.
Pregnancy bellies in women differ in almost everything – from size, shape, skin condition, but also the moment when it becomes visible at all. Keva Denee’s mother, active on TikTok, said that she had always had a small figure – she was just over 160 cm tall, and she weighed only 54 kg before getting pregnant. Later, her belly grew significantly.
Denee reported her pregnancy on social media. She also talked about how she cares for her skin and how her body changes. At some point, Internet users started comparing her belly to a watermelon.
“I love your belly because it looks like a watermelon! You can say that you swallowed the seeds of this fruit a moment before pregnancy,” one commenter wrote. TikToker apparently liked the watermelon comparison as she soon posted another video featuring a fruity prop.
“It’s me and my watermelon belly button,” she wrote under the recording. Denee was clearly amused by the analogy devised by Internet users.
TikToker added that this is the first time she has put a belly with a watermelon next to her. “This is my real reaction, I was not prepared to see it. The fact that they look the same makes it even more fun,” she said.
The video became extremely popular and received a lot of enthusiastic comments.
Denee admitted on the occasion of another recording that she suffers from the so-called ᴅɪᴀsᴛᴀsɪs ʀᴇᴄᴛɪ, a fairly common ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇ that occurs during pregnancy and puerperium. In other words, it is a stretch of the rectus abdominals, i.e. the widening of the white line between them, that causes the rectus muscles of the abdomen to separate from each other.
In the case of ᴅɪᴀsᴛᴀsɪs ʀᴇᴄᴛɪ sufferers, the abdominal muscles do not return to their pre-pregnancy position despite exercise. Instead, they diverge to the sides. Women who are undergoing another pregnancy (their muscles have already been stretched several times) or who have had twin pregnancies are particularly ᴠᴜʟɴᴇʀᴀʙʟᴇ to this condition.
The condition also causes stretch marks, or as Keva likes to call them, “signs of love” on the abdomen.
