Hello ma'am and welcome.

The best thing eight now would be to avoid sugar and sugar containing food and drink, avoid carbohydrates and starch or reduce it to the minimum and introduce mild forms of exercise to your daily regimen, and drink plenty of water. As long as the babys weight is fine, I dont think we have anything to worry about as of now. Keep visiting your doctor for regular follow ups.

Hope this helps.

Wishing you lots of luck.
