Her body has stopped where it is for now. But when she stops phasing . . . her body will continue to change. Meaning, as a woman, she'll get her period, and be able to have children. Which means she most likely will imprint.

B.t.w. Vampires have 25 chromosomes, werewolves 24, and humans 23. But does Nessie have 24? Maybe she has 24 and a half *gasp*! No JK. I honestly don't know. Anybody have any guesses?

Secondly, it's implied that Nessie and her 24-chromosomed ilk are fertile (because Jake imprints on her, and imprinting is an evolutionary mechanism to pass genes on even though it's impossible and inefficient and if evolutionary certianly not concerned with fated true love at all). Hybrids like her, though, cannot reproduce - with her mismatched chromosome count, she should be totally infertile.
Lastly - why can vampires have children with humans? They already have a great reproduction method - bite a guy. For reasons unknown to science (but perhaps due to Ms. Meyer liking to imply sex in all of her perfect, hem, relationships) vampires can have sex with one another; sex which serves no reproductive purpose. And they can reproduce with their intended prey and form magically fertile offspring?
