Hi Jay,

Welcome to HCM.

Persistence of the notch after 22 weeks is associated with pregnancy-induced hypertension, low birth weight, and higher rates of operative delivery and longer duration of nursery care.
You need to follow up regularly for fetus growth record. As well you need to look for signs of hypertension and risk of pre eclampsia in mother.

You can discuss it with your gynecologist.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
