Pregnant 7 months baby weight 600g
Do I need to worry about this? i' m 30yrs 3rd baby and i did stop smoking. My other babies was 2.2kg and 2.8kg but this one seems so small, why does' nt she grow? my sonar is normal no problems. Is there something that i can do? Maybe eat more? I' f picked up 1kg the whole time. I' m also small and weight 53kg.
I am so worried about my baby girl.

Thanks

Marinda

Dear Marinda
That seems a bit small for 7 months. Are they sure about your dates? If the sonar is fine and your doctor is happy then there is no need to worry. You can however take a pregnancy multivitamin.
