your findings indicating some amount of placental insufficiency means problem in the function of placenta in collecting blood from the fetus and in supplying also, may be because of changes in the blood vessels which is usually seen in cases like gestational hypertension,
as it is in early stage with proper workup it can be managed, in case of hypertension take anti-hypertensives properly to keep blood pressure under control and continue the tablets as told by your doctor.
take care.
