So yesterday I had my big u/s and the baby looked great!! He/she was moving around like crazy and measured right on track. Heart, kidneys, etc all looked great, the only issue was the tech couldn't get a good picture of the cord to verify it had 3 vessels so I will have another u/s in 2 months to make sure it is a 3 vessel cord and not a 2 vessel. If it is only a 2 vessel cord then he said I would be having u/s to follow growth and such. I know that in the grand scheme of things a 2 vessel cord isn't a huge deal, but I am really praying that the baby has a 3 vessel cord. Here are a couple pics from the u/s.





Sorry these are big!!

Is a 2 vessel cord bad???? Yesterday the doctor said that he saw 2 vessels in Sophia's umbilical cord????? Now I'm freaking out.

I guess normally a cord is supposed to have 2 arteries and 1 vein so a 2 vessel cord has only 1 artery and 1 vein. My Dr. said it can effect their growth which is why if it is only a 2 vessel cord I will have the follow up u/s to measure growth. My friends oldest had this and he was perfectly fine and healthy.

I did have the urge to look and if I do end up having to have follow up u/s it is going to be soooo hard to not find out especially since dh won't be at all of them.

Thank you so much for explaining this to me... when I was pregnant with DD they never told me about the vessels or arteries in the umbilical cord. So I thought 2 arteries was 2 vessels....

The doctor yesterday told me he saw 2 arteries... so I am assuming that means everything is ok then?
