...and now I'm a bit worried.

You can call me crazy all you'd like. I'd rather be crazy than be right about this!

If you look at the picture, what is that white part around baby's neck??? I'm worried that it's the umbillical cord or if it is just a shadow, I'm worried that it's foreshadowing something bad

I keep thinking about when Brittanie said she talked to that u/s tech she met at church or something and the lady told her that they don't normally tell the parents about those sorts of things, because they don't want to worry them.

Ask for reassurance hun, but I did what I know you will be too afraid to do and I googled it. I found one ultrasound pic like yours (most were 4D) where the cord was wrapped around the baby's neck and it showed up dark. It looked like there was a gap between the baby's head and body. I hope that can help at least ease your mind a little hun xxxx

I would ask for reasurance but like the pp said the cord would be dark. When is your next ob/doc/midwife appointment?

I would think because of the white color it is a the collarbone forming. Look at all the other bright white spots, it is where the bones would form, like along the skull and in the arm and face.

I have booked an app't with my Dr. but he's away next week, so I have to wait until the 23rd of Sept. (and I love my Dr. so don't want to see the replacement).

I asked the girls in the March 2010 DDC and they said the cord wouldn't be white, it would be dark (since there's no bone in it) and it would look more like bubbles.

I feel a little more reassured now, but with me, I'll always worry.

I realy do think it is the collar bone. It is bright white like the other bony areas.

Here's Cora's just for comparison


In yours, it's just a line. In mine, you can see that it's like a tube, round with substance. More 3 dimensional than just a line. So while my picture proves that it's not always dark, I'm still inclined to agree with the other girls. It looks more like bone to me.

But be sure to ask your doctor anyway.
