I had my first OB/Gynae appointment today. I had the same doctor during my first baby and when asked by my family doctor last month if i have any choice for the specialist, i chose her again. Waiting times were as usual long, then i had my urine test to check for protein. After waiting for 35min, it was my turn. Doctor went through the reports and ultrasounds that my family doctor forwarded to her. And then was the moment when she told me that my PAPP A levels are low but i shouldn’t worry about it. As my nature is to go till the roots of the thing, i asked more about it. She told me PAPP A levels depict the functioning of the placenta and the growth of baby. She will need to monitor if the placenta is working properly by the growth of baby, and i will have regular ultrasounds for it.
Obviously, i am tensed and searching internet for stuff related to it where people have posted their experiences but still there is something inside me that reassures me and tells me to stay positive and pray for the best.
