The u/s tech said she wouldn't worry too much about it right now because it's not fully wrapped around his neck, and at 17wks he has enough room to turn and move it out of the way. But, of course I'm thinking, "what if he turns the wrong way and wraps it around his neck more?" ...this is all I keep thinking
If anyone has had this issue with previous ultrasounds, please share!
It is definitely thrown over his shoulder. Is it coming around the other shoulder? I didn't see that, and if not, I would think it just happened to be positioned that way right at that time. Try to relax. Maybe just be adamant that they check on this periodically.
Also, he has a sweet little nose and looks so cute! : )
It's actually more common for babies to have the cord around their neck at times than it is to not. Once you get into your 3rd trimester, it's recommended to do regular kick counts at least once each day as this can help deter a cord accident (which is very rare).
At least 4 of my babies were even born with cords around their necks and there were no problems whatsoever.

My first son had his cord the exact same way at 19 weeks. I asked the tech if that was ok, and she said she saw it a lot and not to worry at that point. She said they can slip in and out of it at that point because they have the room to turn so freely.
Sure enough, when she snapped a few more 3D pics - you could see him stretch and almost pull his arm out of it right in front of us. (He is the blondie in my siggy and came out just perfect! )

Thank you all...I do feel a little better now...I guess this happens more often than I thought, and I happen to have an ultrasound right as the cord was where I didn't want to see it. Little stinker is worrying me already, and he's not even here yet!
It was nice to see him in 3d though...he looks soooo much like my DD!!
So sweet to see them like this so early!!! The cord thing ~ my sister's baby would play with her's and do it on purpose She's still inside but she's doing perfectly and got over her playtime with the cord.
