So basically 2 vessels through the cord instead of 3?
I've just had my 21 week scan and been told I only have 2 vessels. He said to talk to my DR but usually it doesn't mean anything if everything else looks ok, eg heart, kidneys etc. Which are growing and functioning normally according to him. He said it may mean closer monitoring and scans but to check with the DR. That's all well and good but my DR appointment isn't until next week
Can anyone share experiences or words of wisdom?
I've read that it can cause a slower growth rate and therefore a little bub, like 5 - 6 pounds. And that delivery may be induced earlier for fear of feotal distress?
This freaks me out a little as DD was an emergency c/section after a routine check at 38 weeks revealed her heart rate was only 70bpm. I was monitored for 3hrs and she didn't change so out she came!! I remember the surgeon saying that the placenta had started to detoriate and that it may have been affecting her too much. Now I'm stressing a bit that the same may happen with this bub. I'll be renting a doppler for sure.
