Brief Answer:
IUGR -growth restricted foetus.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks For ThE Query To HCM,
Birth defects – Problems with the development of the kidneys or urinary tract which could cause little urine production, leading to low levels of amniotic fluid. Placental problems – If the placenta is not providing enough blood and nutrients to the baby, then the baby may stop recycling fluid. And considering that at 35 weeks the weight of the child is only 2kg, its evident that the growth is inadequate and there is growth restriction. So as per ACOG protocol, an IUGR CHILD SHOULD BE DELIVERED BY 37-38 WEEKS by either cervical priming and induction of labour and if that fails then C-section should be performed to allow delivery so that child can catch up growth after delivery.
