I'm 34 weeks pregnant today everything is fine. Last week I went for an ultrasound & baby is doing fine as the weight is normal, fetal heart is good & the movements are also good. The ratio of umbilical artery should be less than 3 (<3) but its 3.2 Should I worry in this matter? Is this a matter of concern? My doctor ask me not to worry as this is not an important issue just we have to take care about this so to prevent this she increased my Alumin supplements.

Hi sonakshi, as you are 34 weeks usually Doppler study of umbilical artery is 3.5 at dt particular gestational age and at 38weeks it will decrease to 2.5. So your Doppler study is normal . Don't worry .
