I didn’t have this diagnosis, but I had them look for issues like this frequently due to some wonky blood work early on that can point to placental issues. I think the main concern is potential poor growth later on, which is why they will do extra scans. The only other thing I can add is that according to my doctor, a baby experiencing growth issues would be expected to be growing disproportionately- I think the head gets bigger than the body because the blood is going to the most vital areas. She mentioned this because my son dropped from 75th% to 25th% in 4 weeks, but she wasnt worried because he was very proportional (I did worry, but he was fine). Good luck! I know a few people who have had placenta or cord issues and gone on to have perfectly healthy (even large!) babies, hopefully everything goes smoothly for you!
