I'm so sorry we missed your post! I was just cleaning up old links and found your post tonight. My understanding is that the uterine artery "stuff" isn't a strong predictor, but can get your docs to watch you more closely in the absence of any other concerns. How are you doing now?

First trimester ultrasound = high risk?

Hi all,

I'm new here and have a few questions for you experts. :)

I had my 12-week ultrasound last week and the report says my uterine arteries have high pulsatility index (mean PI = 2.59).

In the meeting I had after the scan, the doc said this value puts me at high risk for early preeclampsia, despite everything else being normal (baby, placenta, umbilical cord all normal, BP 120/75, BMI 21).

Has anyone else here had a similar experience at your first trimester scan?

This is my first pregnancy, and I have a meeting with my midwife to talk about this result and our gameplan. Do you have any insights/advice for what I should bring up with her?

Many thanks.
