I was told by my doctor today that my baby has a 2 vessel umbilical cord. He also has Diaphragmatic Heart Hernia. I had an Amnio and a FISH test and both came back completely normal with no chromasonal abnormalities. He said I will need to get a sonogram every to weeks to monitor the baby's growth.
Does anyone have any information (good or bad) on the umbilical cord or heart issues?
I thought the fetus was supposed to have a 2 vessel umbilical cord. I was watching a baby story today and the baby only had one vessel and there were concerns of growth retardation but the baby was fine in fact she was 9 pounds.
my son was born aug 2007 I was told when i was about 5 months that i had a 2 vessel cord as well. he was very concern but not too. the only thing my high risked doc told me was my son may be born small. i was induced a week early because my fluid was low which has alot to do with 2vessel cords. my son weighed 5lbs 13oz 18in long....right now tge only issues my son has is hes pretty small for 3yrs. they got him on pedisure and whole milk to fatten him up but because he gotten taller they think he wont get fat....but mentally and emotionally he is great just he was a bit stunted on the growth which is irritated cause they make it as if I dont feed him when they know I do that son of mine can eat.....lol
