Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

If there is a normal growth suggested by scan and examination there is nothing to worry, the baby's growth gets normal only by good maternal diet and supplements , I hope your taking an extra meal a day and the needed supplements of calcium and iron as advised , eat healthy and sleep well, this will help your child .

Wish you a safe confinement

The baby growth status decided by scanning. Belly is small may be due liquor quantity.
To increase baby's weight mother should be healthy, free from diseases, taking well maintained nutritious diet, the Hb in normal range.

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
If TIFFA scan says that your baby is doing fine, then it is not an issue. You can just relax and go for regular follow up. If you are feeling the baby moving and if your Doctor is able to hear the baby's heartbeat, everything would be fine. Eat healthy nutritious foods like fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. This happens in few patients, whose belly size does not coincide with the gestational age.
Good Luck and Take Care.

Have you not been visiting your obstetrician for regular chekcups? Ultrasonography ?
TIFFA scan is useful for detecting congenital anomalies in fetus.
Weight gain is gradually distributed in 9 months of pregnancy. Howevr in the last one months, baby does gain weight.

Every pregnant women needs atleast 3 sonograms and regular chkup of the baby's heart beat. So see your obstetrician , soon.
