Hello all. At today's 20 week scan we were told that there is a blood flow issue with uterine arteries - Doppler showed that these (one? Both?) demonstrated raised PI.

I am seeing my obstetrician tomorrow but am so worried that I don't think I can sleep a wink tonight. What does all this mean? I've been rebooked for another growth scan in four weeks' time. Apparently this may or may not influence baby's growth. Normal course is to start low dose aspirin, but I'm already taking it due to a low protein C deficiency and thrombophilia gene. It worries me that there is a blood flow issue despite the aspirin!

All else seems to be ok. Please could you shed some light on this, if able?

How do I move this to Pregnancy? Have already reported it to no avail.

PI = pressure index? but no idea what that means, nothing comes up on Google and I probably have a wider target than you, hope all well tomorrow. And I have reported on basis that responses might be are volume related.

Thank you dratsea, I've seen the consultant and I'm none the wiser. They are increasing monitoring - monthly scans, weekly blood pressure checks. There is concern over how this will affect baby's growth.

Trying v hard to stay positive!

Hi all - we're going to move this over to Pregnancy for the OP.
