these are my reports...i hope its easy to see

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

yeah ur doc is ryt dear..
fetal weight is too low n there is growth restriction too..
Opt for LSCS- its gud fa both of u..dnt take chance of normal delivery..it ll risk baby..

hi Nivedita, I know how you must be feeling, I have gone through this. Hugs to you my dear... When has C-section been suggested? I went in 37 weeks... Believe me, there is going to be absolutely no problem... your baby will be fine... I had the most stressed out pregnancy, all for nothing... my baby was lean, thats all.. once born, your baby will catch up on growth... take care dear...

another thing, my baby was below the 3rd centile, yours is above 5, so it is better.. till your c-section atleast you can have pro-pl twice a day, eat chicken, small fish and a good amount of moong sprouts...
