I'm currently 39 weeks and 4 days today, first pregnancy. I had a doppler done today and the doctor reported my umbilical artery S/D ratio was slightly elevated above 97% but good diastolic blood flow was seen. Amniotic fluid is good as well as his movements. I was only dilated 1cm yesterday. I really don't want to be induced unless medically necessary. I'm praying the little guy comes on his own some time this weekend/week. Can someone please tell me if I need to be concerned with the results she provided? His approximate weight last Friday was 5lb 6oz.View Thread
