Raised pi/doppler on scan 35+2.(6 Posts)
I'm 35 weeks now, went for a growth scan monday
(previous restricted growth at 37 weeks with dc1)
The sonographer wouldn't do measurements as I had a scan 12 days prior when I had reduced movements.
But she did check blood flow to baby, and apparently it was high.
They've written 1038 and underlined it twice in my notes... I can't find the normal level for this on Google, but twice underlined?!
I'm back Thursday for a scan to check growth, and redo the measurements, depending on that, depends if they'll deliver.
Consultant said it could be a one off abnormal reading, or it could be the start of things tailing off (like with first pregnancy).
Has anyone had any experienced of raised pi/doppler and all been OK?
Preparing myself for an early delivery anyway, probably csection as she's breech!
I had ctg today, and one tomorrow as movements suddenly aren't great either
Could it be 1.38 OP? 1038 isn’t a number that would usually refer to dopplers, they’re usually between 0.5-2ish depending on which one. 1.38 would be an abnormal measurement of umbilical artery PI, (UAPI), indicating increased resistance in the placenta - that would go along with a small baby/growth restriction. This together with decreased movements is a little bit concerning, so I’m glad you’re having monitoring and a follow up scan. The consultant is right, sometimes it’s a one off, fingers crossed. In the meantime though don’t hesitate to get checked out if you’re worried about movements - even in between CTG appointments.
Re double underline - I do that too, don’t be alarmed, it’s just a way of highlighting a result that needs attention to make sure it gets seen.
Typically if the dopplers stay as they are delivery would be planned around 37 weeks, but earlier if concerns - such as continuing decreased movements.
Hope that helps
Oh and with regard to all being ok - everything usually is ok, baby just sometimes needs to come earlier and if small may need a bit of time in NICU, not of help with feeding etc. not usually a major complication although I know it can be stressful! No personal experience but lots of professional experience
Thank you thank you thank you!
That's so reassured me!
Movements still aren't great.
Im due in at 10.40 for ctg but going to ring and see if I can go earlier.
Yesterday I had 3 kicks on the monitor and one lot in the afternoon where I thought she had hiccups.
A little something at 4am.
Usually way more than this!
Hi, didn’t see your reply until now.
Hope everything was ok on the monitoring, and your follow up scan goes ok.
You definitely did the right thing to ring about movements even though monitoring was planned later.
Good luck for the rest of your pregnancy!
Just had a scan, still raised but OK to the brain for now.
Waiting for a plan.
