There are a number of things that can cause a fetus to stop growing. This could be a genetic problem with the fetus, it could be problem with blood supply to the fetus (problems with the placenta forming properly), infection, medications, malnutrition, problems during organ development.

There really isn't a way of knowing the specific cause of a problem with fetal growth without some testing - and even with testing an exact cause may never be identified.
