Hi there, I have understood your concern and I will suggest you the best possible treatment options.

First of all do not panic.

USG report is showing good fetal growth corresponding to the period of pregnancy.
Baby is normal in appearance.
Bag of water around the baby is having adequate amount of water in it.

Placenta is located at its normal location and is not low lying.
This rules out placenta previa- a condition that causes bleeding issues.
Grade 2 maturity is indicative of ongoing function of the placenta to provide nutrition to baby.

So please do not worry about the reports.

.Please opt for a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen.
Include more portions of fruits and vegetables and salads in daily diet.
Drink plenty of water in the day.
Avoid refined sugars and deep fried foods and bakery products in the diet.
Please take Iron, Calcium, protein and vitamin B 12 and Folic acid supplementation on regular basis.

Think positive.
Meditate regularly.
Practice deep breathing.
May God bless you with a bundle of Joy.

I hope this answer helps you.
