Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.

Birth weight of 2.8 kg indicates your baby is perfectly fine and growing well.
BPD and Abdominal circumference is just below normal . But you need not worry as this is physiologic variation depending on race and sex of the baby.
There is nothing to be of concern.
Hope this helps.
