Women Are Sharing Pictures Of Their 'Food Babies' On Twitter And It's Hilariously Relatable
An unfortunate side effect of indulging in our favourite foods is, of course, bloating. There's nothing to be embarrassed about in having a "food baby" - as it's often nicknamed - but it's not something that we usually show off, with the majority of us preferring to post perfectly filtered pictures to Instagram instead.
One influencer, however, chose to highlight just how common bloating is. London-based, Fatimah Waheeb, sparked conversation after posting a snap of her "food baby" to Twitter, with the caption "I can’t be the only one that gets extremely bloated and starts imagining myself being pregnant??"
Speaking to Buzzfeed News, she elaborated: "I had just finished eating a bunch of wasabi while watching anime and I realised how bloated I was and I thought it would be funny to share how bloated women can get."
"I wasn’t that surprised because I know if I get extremely bloated loads of other women would too and it’s nice to know other women get as bloated as I do and pretend to be pregnant!"
The post was quite the hit on Twitter, and inspired other women to share pictures of their own "food babies".
"I’ve been waiting for this moment LOLLLL," wrote one Twitter user, while another added "It is SO comforting to see that there are other women who experience this level of bloating thank u sis"
And Fatimah just loved the response. "I love the replies!! i’m so glad bloating is normalised, fuck anyone that said my bloating wasn’t normal lmao it very much is," she later wrote on Twitter.
Looks like we'll be embracing the bloat in 2019!
