Brief Answer: improve protein intake and hydration & reevaluate Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX .... Welcome to Healthcare Magic. The growth of fetus is normal according to geestational age as evident on USG. The doppler flow is also normal. There is less amount of fluid around fetus. To replenish it consult your local gynecologist. Heemin infusion and high protein diet are commonly advised. Rest in left lateral position to improve placental circulation. Make a count of fetal movements which should be more then 10 per day. Non stress test twice weekly. Ultrasound after one week to assess amniotic fluid. I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
