All OK at twenty week scan but...

we have: "Two-vessel cord also known as single umbilical artery (SUA)"

Baby is growing perfectly and my odds of Downs are still 1 in well over 2000 and there were no other markers. I do have to go for a fetal heart EKG in three weeks.

It's a 1 in 100 chance to have this problem... Miracle babies... why do they have to KEEP beating the odds all the time??? happy.gif

I am OK, feel better since there is no slowing of growth or anything else, but not too happy about it all. Anyone have the same? (Probably not!) OB, who I saw right after, is fine with it, really not worried, but still...

But everything else was perfect: size, bones, hands, feet... all that. Got some good pics, too!

Thanks, ladies!

Sara H
