Sarah Stage's baby bump continues to be a topic of conversation.
The 30-year-old Los Angeles-based model has made headlines recently after being on the receiving end of criticism for her tiny figure throughout her pregnancy, but Stage recently took to Instagram to shut down haters with one (delicious) photo of herself and gal-pal Melissa Molinaro as they prepared to chow down on some In-N-Out.
Simply captioning the snapshot with a few emojis, Stage smiled at the camera while holding up a juicy, bitten burger from the famous fast-food restaurant to prove that she's indulging during her pregnancy. Although the photo still drew some cynical responses from Instagram users who felt that the photo op may have been fake, Stage chose to ignore the backlash and continued to keep her fans updated on her journey to motherhood by revealing that this week is special.
Posting another sideways bump shot, Sarah captioned the picture, "Ahh #9months this week I can't believe it!! He's already 6lbs and still 4 more weeks to go #BabyJames."
And while her tiny bun in the oven continues to draw criticism from the public, Stage also continues to let her Instagram speak for itself when users question if the model is being unhealthy during her pregnancy.
According to the Mayo Clinic, "There's no one-size-fits-all approach to pregnancy weight gain. How much weight you need to gain depends on various factors, including your pre-pregnancy weight and body mass index (BMI)."
Per the pregnancy weight gain chart on their website, women who are underweight (a BMI under 18.5) should gain between 28 to 40 pounds while a woman who is considered obese (a BMI of 30 or more) should gain 11 to 20 pounds.
