Is it just us, or are the responses to Bristol Palin's pregnancy update surprising?

Bristol Palin is six months along into her second pregnancy.

And with the backlash she received from the announcement of her pregnancy, it is a surprise to see her posting any updates about her growing belly at all.

And where we would normally see endless comments about how terrible a person she is — for any number of ridiculous reasons — we see only love and support on her Instagram for the mother-to-be.

One said, "You’re itty bitty!" And another said, "You look amazing!" Lots of others echoed these sentiments with lots of hearts and smiley face emoticons.

If that is the case and things continue to stay positive and troll-free, maybe we will see more frequent baby bump posts as she marches ever closer to her due date.

I do have to agree with her fans, though, she looks really good — and nothing like a tank!
