Take that, haters.

During her first pregnancy, Kim Kardashian was criticized for her weight gain. (Because that's such an abnormality, right?) And now, five-months pregnant with her second child, she's (as some dare to suggest) *too skinny* to be pregnant at all.

Recognizing the injustice of both condemnations, Kardashian reached her breaking point, and took to social media to make the ultimate statement–posting a naked #selfie showcasing her 100% pregnant body in all its glory. The snap, which is reminiscent of other prenatal portraits from the likes of Demi Moore and Jessica Simpson, is both filter and photoshop free and comes with a candid, inspiring message.

"First they say I'm too skinny so I have to be faking it...Now they say I'm too big so I have to be faking it...SMH!," she wrote. "Some days I'm photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I've just eaten & I look bigger. It's all a part of the process. I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate.

Everyone's body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I've learned to love my body at every stage! I'm going to get even bigger & that's beautiful too! I'm blessed to even be pregnant and even luckier to not have preeclampsia as far as I know, so I don't have the swelling issue this time! They also say your body carries a boy different than a girl! Whatever the case may be I'm grateful to God for this miracle & no matter what rumors or comments you throw my way this time they truly don't affect me!"

As Kanye would say, "Take that, haters!" #JustPregnantKeeks
