Fitness model Sarah Stage’s incredibly tiny baby bump is once again drawing criticism.
The 33-year-old Instagram star announced last month, via an Instagram post showing off a flat stomach, that she was pregnant with her second child.
Ever since she revealed the exciting baby news Stage has been sharing photos of her barely-there bump, but the pregnancy pics seem to be causing more concern from fans than joy.
In an Instagram post Tuesday, Stage hit back at her critics, writing that her baby is perfectly fine.

“I’m at a place in my life where happiness, peace and joy are my priority,” she captioned a photo of her in a bikini rocking a toned stomach. “Especially being #6monthspregnant, there’s no room for any negativity so please take it elsewhere.”
“Baby #2 is healthy and measuring just fine,” she added. “I would think that after having James, who was born almost 9lbs and healthy, people would be more understanding during this pregnancy and keep their ignorant comments to themselves.”
Stage went through the same backlash in 2015 while pregnant with her son, James. She gave birth in April of that year, telling E! News that he was perfectly healthy.
Despite the backlash from fans, Stage said she’s thrilled to become a mom again.

“I’m super excited that James will be a brother and have somebody to play with,” she told People magazine last month. “(This pregnancy) has been so different. Having a toddler and running after him, I’m definitely a lot more tired. But I’m not complaining, I’m so excited!”
