Hi Doctor,
I am 31 weeks pregnant. My doctor told me that she feels my baby is a bit weak.
She has advised me to take up the Color dopler test.
I've already undertaken 3 ultrasounds and all my reports have been perfectly normal till date. Is it safe to undergo so many ultrasounds?

Thanks for the query.
Ultrasounds are safe in pregnancy. If your doctor is suspecting decrease growth of baby, in my opinion you should have doppler ultrasound with fetal growth parameters. It is safe and must. Take good diet and drink a lot of fluids.

Best wishes
