Hi Doctor,
I am currently 21 weeks pregnant. I had anotomy scan by yesterday. The report states Liquor subjectively less and Both uterine arteries had high resistance flow. The doctor also said that my baby is smaller than its normal size. I would like to know the reason for such a condition and what should be done to correct it.

HELLO

THE ABOVE SAID FINDINGS AT SUCH AN EARLY GESTATIONAL AGE PUTS THE PREGNANCY AT HIGH RISK.

HIGH RESISTANCE FLOW IN UTERINE ARTERIES, DECREASED LIQUOR AND SMALLER FETAL SIZE ARE SUGGESTIVE OF UTERO PLACENTAL INSUFFICIENCY.

INCREASED MATERNAL AGE , MATERNAL DISEASES LIKE HYPERTENSION, DIABETES MAY BE THE POSSIBLE CAUSES.

ADEQUATE BED REST, NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS L-ARGININE, LYCOPENE MAY BE HELPFUL.
