Brief Answer: Get doppler ultrasound Detailed Answer: Hi, Her weight should have increased. Her total weight 45 kg is also lower. Please visit a fetal medicine specialist to get fetal doppler ultrasound of fetus to see if there is intrauterine growth restriction ( IUGR). If fetus is not growing its a matter of concern. Please follow up with doppler report Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol
