your wife has enter second trimester which is safe and comfortable stage so it's important that you keep yourself fit and well by eating a balanced diet and exercising regulrly.
From early in pregnancy, babies grow at different rates.Don't worry too much if an ultrasound indicates that your baby is much smaller or larger.1kg is normal weight so dont worry by 9 mnth fetus will gradually increse the weight.
Eat a healthy, well balanced diet. Remember that what you eat and drink can have an effect on your baby and eating healthily means you have a better chance of staying well throughout your pregnancy.

Avoid high-risk foods. It's a good idea to stay away from soft cheeses, pre-cooked meat and unpasteurised dairy products. Don't forget to wash all fruit and vegetables thoroughly.

Follow basic hygiene procedures. For eg, washing your hands thoroughly after touching pets.
