Foetal blood flow Doppler results

Hello, I'm 16+3 today, and had a Doppler to measure blood flow. I'm already taking aspirin, and as a result of my scan, the consultant has recommended doubling my dose. I feel all a bit at sea, as the consultant had to dash off to surgery towards the end of my scan so I'm rather confused about the results, and google is not much help! I was wondering if anyone else is having the same experience? Beyond the blood flow, everything else looks fine, the baby's heart rate is bang on. Thanks in advance!

Hi, my consultant & the sonographers told me they wouldn't attempt to do the cord blood flow until quite a bit later on (think it was about 28 wks when they first started checking it), so unfortunately can't offer much advice. Can you call to speak to your consultant for clarification before you double your aspirin dose?

Elly, I may do just that, it hadn't even occurred to me! Silly me. Thanks for replying.
