A Girl Tweeted About Her Food Baby And The Replies Are A Comforting Reminder That She Isn't Alone

"This thread makes me feel so normal."

Women on Twitter are sharing candid pictures of themselves nursing their "food babies" — and if you've experienced bloating, you can probably relate.

i can’t be the only one that gets extremely bloated and starts imagining myself being pregnant??

The thread was started by Fatimah Waheeb, a student and influencer from London who shared a picture of herself after a meal.

She told BuzzFeed News: "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!"

Just to clarify, Fatimah is NOT pregnant and there is no elaborate gender reveal to follow.

i deadass deleted the whole thread by accident but no i’m not pregnant

Her admission that she sometimes imagines her bloated stomach as a pregnancy prompted other women to share their pictures, and Fatimah couldn't be happier.

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 said: "It’s 2019 and I feel like more women are becoming more accepting about the ‘flaws’ in our bodies and we’re embracing while also making light of it as well and I love it."

And some people have been waiting for this moment.
