Question: Hi i m 19 weeks bt my belly is small so wt should be done
Answer: Congratulations on your pregnancy and all the best for your motherhood.
All pregnancy bumps are different, if this is your first pregnancy, if your abdominal muscles have never been stretched before by pregnancy, your muscles will tend to be quite toned and tight. Depending on the position your baby is in, your belly may at times look smaller. It is nothing to do with size of the babies, don't worry.

Answer: Hello! Dont worry at all. It is nothing to be worried about small baby bump. There are quite some reasons for this
Being a first time mother - if your abdominal muscles have never been stretched before by pregnancy, your muscles will tend to be quite toned and tight. This can make you 'show' later and hold your baby very close and high, looking 'small'. Some women having their second or subsequent baby can also look small, particularly if they were very athletic and fit between pregnancies.
The position of the baby - your baby moves and changes position regularly, particularly up until around 32 to 34 weeks of the pregnancy. Depending on the position your baby is in, your belly may at times look smaller and at others slightly bigger. Even during very late pregnancy, your baby may move their back from one side of your belly to the other, also changing your shape.
Your height - women who are tall and long-waisted, with a large length between the top of their hip and the bottom of their lowest rib, have plenty of room for their baby to grow upwards. This will tend to make them 'look' smaller because their uterus is not pushed as far forward.
The uterus moving the intestines - the growing uterus can push your intestines upwards and backwards, to tuck away behind the uterus (making you look 'all baby' or like you've 'swallowed a basketball'). This is compared to the intestines being pushed around the sides of the uterus, giving a woman's belly a rounder, fuller and bigger look.
