belly not growing

so my question is this...my stomach seems to have stayed the exact same size for the past several weeks. you can look at my pictures to see. its not growing anymore...my last ultrasound at 19 weeks 6 days revealed that all the baby's measurements were good and she was growing. soo why would my stomach have stopped growing? at first i thought i was imagining it but now looking at picture and taking a new one every week its definitely the same size. im 22 weeks.

Trust me your growing, you cant tell cause of course you look at your belly everyday.  But I notice it, try not to worry about it. before you know it you'll be huge and you'll be thinking wow what the heck happened lol.....

Your doctor/midwife can confirm by taking your belly measurement - as far as I understand it, it should correspond in centimeters,  more or less, to where you are in weeks. My belly seems pretty small - in fact, several people have commented that I look "small" , and I'm 40 weeks! - but my OB has reassured me that I'm right on target. I wouldn't worry if your u/s was fine :)

All I can tell you is ive had 3 babies already and on my 4th...my last 2 you couldnt even tell I was pregnant until the last month. Literally I was wearing my reg jeans, the doctors kept tellin me I was going to have really really lil babies. They came out 6.13 and 6.12! I wouldnt worry but it!! Good luck!!!
