I was diagnosed with a 2 vessel cord not the normal 3 vessel cord (umbilical cord) at my 19 week ultrasound. They have me going for a level 2 ultrasound. How common is this?? Should I be worried? Have any of you experienced this?? I need more info!!! Thanks!

My second and third babies had 2 vessel cords I wasnt even informed til after the birth. nothing was complicated and that may have to do with why i was not informed. But i guess the us tech just didnt see the need to say anything. I am sorry you are stressed but i dont have any more information that that.
