Which is not to say I will not be having anymore children! Well, DH hasn't said yes yet, but he isn't saying no, either...... Anyway, I have had two short cords. Tanith's wasn't short enough to cause problems, but, obviously, Tesla's was a problem. So if we have more, I can labor in the water, but I have to have land births so we can clamp the cord right away. I'm just glad I could still have homebirths if I want! Phew!

I agree a waterbirth isn't the best option. Can they not tell with an u/s if the cord is short?

At least you can still have your homebirth. That's a relief!

That's a good question. Cherie had a short cord, and nothing was said at the u/s. I plan on asking next time around

It is great you can still have a homebirth.

Okay, so JM ate my post. Stacey, it's possible they could tell on an u/s, but that is saying that they can see the cord. Tesla was in the pike position, so it's not likely they would have been able to find enough cord to measure. Even at her 20 wk u/s (the only one we had) the cord is only visible in a couple of the shots, and only a small part of it. So while I can request an u/s at the end of my pregnancy to check, there is no guarantee it will give us the information we want.

I was wondering that myself... Noelle's cord was short to the point they were only able to put her as far as on my lower abdomen...
