IMHO Lucy Benjamin looks far more than 3 months along, as she said, unless she’s having twins (etc.)?

She looks to be at least six months along, but again that’s just my opinion.

This question isn’t meant to be rude or offensive, I’m just curious. Is she plus sized? ‘Cause there’s no way that she’s only 3 months along with a tummy like that! Maybe that photograph is at an odd angle, but she looks way bigger than three months.
