Hi welcome to healthcaremagic

The fetus is 8 months of gestation, since the artery supplying the fetus is thin , it will lead to placental, insufficiency , which will inturn lead to decresed growth of the fetus.. Repeat the USG scanning again, take the opion another gynaecologist nearby, at present the baby is healthy, she can continue the pregnancy for 2 more weeks and better to under go elective LSCS(cesarean section)...
