hello,

scans are not very accurate at this stage of the pregnancy, so do not worry too much about the scan results.  At that stage of pregnancy I had 1 scan saying my baby was 8 lbs and another saying she was 5 lbs, different technician within 2 days of eachother.  She turned out to be 7 lbs 6 oz, a perfect weight for her.  

The best thing you can do for your baby at this stage of your pregnancy is to keep your blood sugars normal (80-120) as much as you can, and eat healthy and nutritious diet.  regular gentle exercise will also help.
