Thank you for your question.
The ultrasound estimation of the baby's weight suggests that it might either be smaller than expected or it is not gaining weight as it should. Her obstetrician is the best person to clarify your doubts. If they have suggested admission then that is what you need to do for the wellbeing of mother and baby. It is very important that you speak to your obstetrician about your fears and doubts so they can help you clarify them. Trust in your doctor is extremely important because there are two lives involved. If you are unable to do so you need to find someone you can trust because obstetrics is unpredictable and things can change very rapidly. You will need to have implicit faith in your doctor to do whatever it takes to keep mother and baby safe. You cannot afford to have doubts or fears at the time of delivery or admission. Its best to sort this out while you still have time. Engaging with the doctor will reassure you so please do not hesitate to ask your questions.
With all the very best wishes for both mother and baby
