That's a relief! Thank you. The doctors said the arteries were borderline, which is why I'm on lda, but I remember the shape and it looked like the "normal", so at least when they measured it then, it was just the hypertension.

Here's hoping it stays that way!

"The uteroplacental circulation can be assessed by means of Doppler ultrasonography of the uterine arteries.10 This procedure has been reported in numerous studies to be a promising technique for predicting the level of risk" Read the rest of this article and you will see photos of what the notched arteries look like: http://www.cmaj.ca/content/178/6/727.full

I've been reading some of the older posts, and thinking about the uterine dopplers. Some of the posts talk about "notching" being a sign of pre-e. Can anybody describe what the doppler is supposed to look like, and then what a notched dopper would look like? Pictures would be even better if they're available.
