Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Aashish Raghu's  Response
You appear to be suffering from Anemia due to less blood. You must go for regular checkups to your Doctor every month without fail who will properly examine your baby. Get your blood work up done and show it to your Doctor, also get your Blood sugar estimated by the test called Oral Glucose Tolerance Test OGCT.
