Brief Answer:
Just borderline growth

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
I have reviewed the report and the prescription.
The ultrasound report mentions the estimated fetal weight to be 11%, which is just more than the cut off for labelling the fetus as growth restricted, which is 10 the centile.
So, your doctor has advised high protein diet and amino acid supplementation to promote the growth of the fetus.
It is advisable to take the treatment as advised.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
