I have known many women that carried the babies in such a way that they barely showed all the way to the end. Like a friend of mine used to say - I am carring my baby on my back - she has a beautiful little girl.

Have you had an ultrasound and if so, at what week of your pregnancy? If this was normal and it was done after 12wks (because all babies develop at about the same rate from 3-12wks) than you are probably okay. Also, has your doctor/midwife been palpatating your abdomen and checking the hight of your fundus (the fundus is the top of the uterus and they measure it from the top of your pubic bone) If these measurements have been fine, then you're probably okay. Also, are you either very overweight or very trim with a taller torso. In both cases, it's sometimes tougher to tell. What I'm trying to say is, just like all babies develop differently, so do all women while pregnant. At 6 1/2 months, your baby is no where near the 7-8lb baby you'll be giving birth to as, most of the growth occurs in the last 2- 2 1/2 months of pregnancy. You could be coming up on a little growth spurt in (the tummy area) sometime soon. Any which way you end up, it's still best to discuss such concerns with your doctor as they can give you an idea what is "normal" and whether or not you are gaining enough wait, etc. It's not worth it to worry yourself because, let's face it, there's too many variables to your concern.
