Today at my OB apt. The doctor told me that the umbilical cord was long. He didn't say how long. It just worries me cause I don't want it to get wrapped around the babies neck or anything. Has anyone else had this issue??? It's just scary.
My dd is 16 May 2.....boys never noticed her in junior high, but apparently in high school ishe is a babe...they call all the time and randomly show up at our door. She doesn't seem really interested, I am often left to converse with these pimply gangly lads. It's a good thing my office is in our home now.
The really frightening thing is how old I will be when this little girl hits 16....
I have read that it means it can get knotted up easier and that can lead to some complications, but even that is not all that common. At least they know about it and can watch it. Will they do any more monitoring of it?
I'm not far behind you...I'm 33, will be 34 right around the time my baby is due in August. I had my oldest daughter young-at 18. So it hasn't been THAT long since I was her age. But by the time my boy is that age I will be 50!
