A photo of two friends comparing baby bellies has proved that when it comes to pregnancy, every body is different.
The discussion started after Australian fitness model Chontel Duncan, who was 21 weeks pregnant, posed belly-to-belly for a photo with her friend Nat, who was four weeks further along in her pregnancy.
Highlighting differences in each woman's shape and size, the image prompted Duncan to share a few home truths about pregnancy.
"Each woman carries different, and this most certainly doesn't mean one is doing something wrong or not healthy" she wrote. "We both have healthy growing babies, and we both have had incredible pregnancies so far, feeling amazing and full of energy."

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
Duncan, who is experiencing pregnancy for the first time, said she was grateful for advice from her friend, who was expecting her third child.
The fitness enthusiast later shared an update, posting a pic to Instagram of her pregnancy figure a month away from her due date.
