Gretchen Rossi is now more than six months along in her pregnancy, and she is aware that her bump is smaller than people expect. She's taken to Instagram in the past to clap back against haters — and even to assure fans and followers of her pregnancy after IVF journey that she is eating.
In fact, The Real Housewives of Orange County has always been eating throughout her time expecting the little girl — even when she was nauseous in the early stages, she managed by eating one food she discovered was helpful. And now, approximately at the beginning of her third trimester, she's demonstrated on Instagram that she's eating full-on comfort foods, such as macaroni and cheese with ground turkey meat prepared by her beau Slade Smiley — and most recently, over the weekend, she showed herself in the process of cooking homemade beef stroganoff on the stove.
Sharing a recent ultrasound image, she wrote, "Doc said she is the perfect size and growing perfectly so for any of those people that tried to body shame me after my last post and say I am not healthy or eating enough, you can go suck it... The doc said every women carries differently and that I am doing great! My weight gain is on point and baby’s size is on point, so that’s all that matters! I eat all day long and plenty of food! My doc also said because I have a longer torso, and was fit before it sometimes takes longer to pop out and show."
She also added a plea: "Remember to please be kind and accept every women’s journey as their own! I am sure I will start to really show and get a big ass bump soon enough. and then I will start to hear I am too big now... lol #cantwin."
Earlier, she also jokingly shared an Instagram quote in which she sympathized with the idea that pregnant women are always hungry — and should be handled with care.
