“Some of y’all are just sad and I wish you happiness someday,” the Vanderpump Rules star, 31, wrote on her Sunday, November 1, Instagram Story alongside a paragraph describing the 16th week of pregnancy. “I am happy and healthy and I’m going to enjoy my pregnancy no matter what the trolls say.”

The paragraph noted that “all baby bumps at 16 weeks are different,” explaining, “Believe it or not, some women don’t really show at 16 weeks pregnant, while others have pronounced bumps. The wide variety of baby bumps can be attributed to everything from a woman’s size and shape to whether this is her first pregnancy or her second, third or fourth. Whatever you do, don’t compare your 16 weeks pregnant belly to anyone else’s.”
