help! baby not getting enough blood flow
An_217089 posted:
had my 20 weeks scan today, everything was good except for the bilateral uterine notches - meaning the baby is not getting enough blood and nutrient. I have been on aspirin for the past 3 weeks and the OB wants me to continue without seeming too concern.

Based on the online research, this is a serious problem that would cause stillbirth.

Anyone has/had this problem? Please share your experience and advice! Thanks.

Hi Anon_126157,

Try to stay calm and just listen to your body. Honestly, the internet can be a wonderful thing, but also fill our heads with more anxiety than needed. Personally, I have had a hard time finding much information on this topic. If you are having any second thoughts, doubts or discomforts your doctor's treatment and/or opinion, it is never too late to ask another professional.

Just remember that staying calm, positive, healthy and informed is the best thing for you and your LO. I wish that I had more experience and insight on this, but hope that you find some information and please keep us posted. You are both in my thoughts and prayers.
Best Wishes! Amelia
