  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    Baby weight at this time is on lower side but if it is not associated with any other abnormal finding, it should not lead to problems during delivery or after birth.
    Low birth weight can also be due to maternal factors as height, weight, diet, blood pressure, Genetic, stress physical and mental, some medical disease or paternal constitution. If it is associated with IUGR, it may lead to complications otherwise can be considered normal.
    You should take healthy diet with high protein, plenty of fluids, rest and avoid stress. Usually growth after delivery, baby catches up on weight and other factors with good care and nutrition. Baby's growth is also affected by genetic factors.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
