Insufficient Blood Flow In Uterus Placenta

marianna - January 31

Hi. I am new to the forum and I'd really need to hear your advice and experience. I'm 38 y.o. and 29w pregnant and since I was in the 22nd w. my ultrasound had shown that my blood flow from the uterus to the placenta meets high resistance. The umbilical cord is still fine and so are the baby's measurements so far. My doctor put me on heparin and small-dose aspirin to prevent blood clotting in the placenta. But now he wants to monitor me every week and also to give me a cortizone injection to help the baby's lung maturation in case of preterm delivery. My previous pregnancy was traumatic as I had twins but one was stillborn and the other only 2kg at 35 weeks of delivery. So now I am scared to death and although my son is very healthy I am afraid of preterm delivery for the complications that may arise in the baby. My doctor said I am at risk for preeclampsia which I didn't have in the previous pregnancy. If some of you have similar experiences, please share them with me. My husband tells me to be cool and have happy thoughts but my doctor said that everything is possible, from the worst to the best outcome. Thank you, marianna.
