drink coconut water daily ,eat healthy and more.also ask doctor to add arginin. this will help to grow baby.
Usg doesn't go by inches but by weeks for baby growth. If baby size is lagging behind by 2 weeks and amniotic fluid index is within normal parameters then don't worry too much. Your doctor will give some medicine to improve baby's growth. Occasionally some intravenous medicines are also infused if required. Let your doctor take the decision.
