I was told I have placental resistance. Is this the same as placental insufficiency? I am a nurse on a medical surgical floor, should I be on bedrest?
Bedrest not helpful: On US, placental resistance to flow is either normal, or increased resistance to free flow of fetal blood may occur, shown by doppler imaging of cord blood flow, reported as the S/D (systolic and diastolic) flow ratio. So long as the fetus continues to grow normally, nothing need be done. Significant slowing of fetal growth indicates a C/S is needed. O diastolic flow requires emergency C-section ...Read more

Why are my doctors scared about placental insuffincy if they haven't done a ultrasound to even see and im a type 1 diabetic (well controlled)?
Diabetes in pregnanc: I'm sure your doctors are not "scared", maybe concerned would be more appropriate. Diabetes, as I'm sure you know, affects your blood vessels and therefore your circulation. The same goes for your placenta when pregnant, they're not as efficient as a non-diabetic's. That's why they're likely checking your baby's growth regularly, doing nst's, & recommending delivery no later than 38.5-39 weeks. ...Read more
