Hi, do i have to be worried, that my babytummy hasn't grown in the last months?

Hi, do i have to be worried, that my babytummy hasn't grown in the last months? I am very slim and now in the end of my 17th pregnancy week. Does it mean, that the baby isn't growing? I am worried. But the last ultrasound was normal. Is it gonna be a small baby? Sickly? I am eating well and alot. So what is it?
Thanks for reading

  • You don't do much growing before week 20, so if the ultrasound shows that baby is growing normal I wouldn't be worried. With my first I never even looked pregnant, but because i'm a little chubby (size 14) but with my daughter I popped out in the last trimester

  • No need to worry!! It is still early in the will hit right about 20 then all the sudden blow up and feel like a beached whale...sorry but you will. I was very small before I got pregnant and didnt start growing (at least that I could tell) untill i was closer to 20...just keep on eating stay hydrated and exercise...And hope your pregnancy goes well!! And CONGRATS!

  • Yup...just like the others said, it's all normal. I didn't start "showing" with my first until my 22nd week...and then it went from "slight bump" to "ohmygoshI'mhuge" bump o.O

  • In 20 weeks, you'll look back at this post and chuckle and moan. No worries.

  • I was very small my entire pregnancy, some people just don't have huge bellies when they are pregnant. If you are really worried though, get in to see your dr.
