I posted this on the birthing naturally board earlier today, and thought I'd post it over here, too. Just in briefer form.
I had my 34 week follow-up u/s and appointment today. The u/s was to follow-up on his ureters (tube from kidney to bladder) to make sure they were no longer enlarged (right one looks good, left is still a little big. No real problems, though!). I had my u/s and was sent on my merry way to my appointment with the doc 10 minutes later.
Well, we get in there and we're talking and she mentions the cord is around the baby's neck. Argh, what?! She said they'll repeat an u/s in 2 weeks to check on that and his position (he's in an awesome position right now - head down and looking at my spine!). My biggest concern with the cord being around his neck at that point was the fact that they are now talking repeat c/s if the cord is still around his neck at delivery. At first I was all up in arms about this, but now I'm just terrified of a cord accident. I've been doing some research, and of course have read the worst of people losing their babies in utero due to cord issues.
I know I shouldn't google, but I was honestly just looking for some material on whether it was true or not about the cord being around the neck meaning instant c-section. I'm actually so worried about him now, I think I'm going to call the doctor first thing tomorrow morning and go over it all with her. She didn't say much about it (nor seem too concerned), but I just want everything explained to me better now that I've had some time to think about it.
Blah. Thanks for listening! I'm just worried, now!
