I am having a Doppler scan tomorrow and have seen on the one i had last week that o.62 is spot on for what they want. so my question is if it is lower by how much is too much? might sound like i being a worry wart and i suppose i am but any who thanks is you can answer xx am 35 weeks and it's because of no growth xxx

Sorry I don't even know what a doppler scan is, or what 0.62 means. confused Why aren't they giving you a proper scan if there has been no growth?

i will have a growth scan next week the Doppler is to measure the blood flow between me and the baby was hoping someone would know as google doesn't smile

I had a growth and doppler scan last week and looking at my notes i cant see anything relating to the doppler side of things confused so i can't advise but I would be reassured that if last week it was spot on and if there is any problems I'm sure the sonographer will explain.

Sorry, that was a useless post and very unhelpful blush

I am the opposite to you, I have huge growth. Baby measuring at 38-40 weeks when I'm only 34 and off the scale on the centile charts!

Hope next week brings some good news, you never know you may meet your baby sooner than you were expecting smile

Hi I am currently having regular Doppler scans too for a slow growing baby. My understanding is that the lower the numbers (PI and RI) the better. Mine was 1.09 today which I'm a bit worried about but last week the PI was 0.71 which the midwife said was excellent. HTH
