    Hello,

    I am 45 and 21 weeks pregnant. I just went for my 20 week scan, and it was discovered that the ateries in the placenta are restricted. I am really worried now and was wondering if anyone has information about this condition. The doctor that first informed me of this didn't have much to say about it...she just said that I should rest.

    Hi Cahuita,

    I'm having a time finding information on this artery constriction of the placenta. I definitely think that you should rest and call your doctor for more information about your condition and being monitored. Please let us know how you and your precious LO are doing and what the physician says.
    You are both in my thoughts and prayers. Take care and try to stay calm (though, easier said than done). ((((hugs))))
    Best Wishes! Amelia
