Question on 4D ultrasound

4051454?1236114347
Last week a girl in my town had her baby stillborn, because the cord was wrapped around his neck 4 times, so I'm SO worried about that now - and today I went for another ultrasound because last time they couldn't find the nose/lips, so while I was there I asked her if the cord was anywhere near his head, and she said no, it's floating off somewhere else, so I was like okay, that's good - then she turned the ultrasound to 4D so we could get a picture of his face (of course we didn't because he was covering it up! :[ ) and I never noticed the cord or anything near his head but in the picture she printed for me it looks like the cord is RIGHT by his neck, I can't tell if it's the cord or not, so I want your opinions please! Should I be worried?!

ok, well first off...  OMG THAT PIC IS ADORABLE!  even though you can't see the face, its still awesome!!!!

it does look to me that the cord is in between the arms...  but i could be wrong.  maybe someone else is better at looking at these u/s pics.

I know! he's soo stubborn she was trying to get him to move his hands for like 5 minutes, he must've been sleeping, but looks like I don't get to see his face until he's born! :[

For what it's worth it is extremely common for the cord to be wrapped around the neck during birth (not 4 times of course) and it's not a problem at all in most cases.  That's why they tell us to stop pushing when the head comes out so they can suction out the nose and mouth and check for the cord around the neck.  In most cases it's not a problem.  There are just sooo many things we can worry about if we focus on the possible negatives we really just have to work to be positive and think of the best!  

Here's a question and answer on the subject from a doctor:
