"She was scratching her head and pouting this morning," Stacey captioned the picture.

The star then went on to reveal more about why she had been worried.

Opening up about her experience, the down-to-earth mum wrote: "Lots of people have said my bump is very small, and it really is measuring at 2% instead of 20%+ but thankfully baby is exactly where she needs to be today despite my tummy size."

Stacey continued: "Every pregnancy, every bump, and every baby is different. And as kind as people are, I think sometimes it's important to remember when telling someone they look 'big' or 'small' or anything in between it can be so worrying for the mummy growing a human and worrying why they look so different to someone else. And can be really scary…

"I know people don't mean any harm by saying 'you're so petite and tiny', but it definitely has played on my mind a lot and made me worry I wasn't growing properly."
