sorry for the worries, at least they caught it so they will actually have something to watch out for.

It sure does stink when we have no control over things...

((hugs)) Anything less than perfection is worrisome, even if taking the aspirin does help. I'm glad they are on top of it and doing everything possible to monitor you, and I hope your pregnancy continues uneventfully.

Regarding the scan itself, that was my first experience getting mashed on my stomach. I was convinced she was punching my babies...OW!

Glad to hear that your NT scan went well!!
Don't stress about the notching. It is WAY too early for them to assess whether it will be a concern in your pg. I had it and it wasn't discovered until 21 weeks and by 24 weeks it was gone. If you still have it after 24 weeks then it can indicate possible issues with growth restrictions and pre e. There will be notching early on as the placenta attaches to the uterine wall. It takes time for the placenta to eat away at the blood vessels. The notching is just a result of the blood not being able to smoothly flow through the blood vessels yet.
Hopefully future appointments will show that the notching has gone away.

Krystal - I'd be a little concerned about the notching, too, but it's great that they spotted it early and will continue to monitor it.

Congrats on a GREAT NT scan!!! SO happy baby looks so great :) Sounds like a good plan to start the asprin & keep monitoring it. Having your doctors on it so early is very reassuring. Now that they know & are watching I'm sure they can keep on top (((hugs))))
