I'm 19 weeks now and my bump seems to have stopped growing -- it even looks like it shrunk a little last week. Is this normal? Could I have been bloated before and now losing fluids or something?

I feel perfectly normal and the previous ultrasounds showed a perfectly normal and healthy baby. We're due to have another ultrasound (to determine sex, even) this Thursday, but I'm a bit concerned...

Has anyone else experienced this?

I did experience this around 22 weeks myself, I went to my Dr. to be checked for it and he convinced me that it was common to have 2-7days of slower growth at this stage, for reassurace I gave birth to a healthy baby boy on 9-12-09. Be positive and dont forget to discuss it at you next appt. GOOD LUCK!!!!
