Knot in umbilical cord

I couldn't believe it... Sorry remembering bits and pieces of my birth story. Walker's umbilical cord had a knot in it! I am so thankful he was born early and via c-section! Had anyone ever heard of having a knotted umbilical cord before?

Yes they check during ultrasounds the blood flow thro the cord. Or at least they do for me.
