So at our scan yesterday we learned that the umbilical cord only has one artery (it's supposed to have two). This is linked to all kinds of scary awful things, but it looks like for us it is isolated because there are no anatomical problems and my genetic tests all came back with fantastically low numbers. But I was not at all expecting to have a problem and I'm a little freaked out about some of the worst case scenarios.
Fortunately, I am not risked out of the birth center and the only thing that will be different from here on out is that I will be having monthly ultrasounds to make sure the baby is growing appropriately and also to rule out any heart problems. But it's still technically a high risk pregnancy now.
Anyone else in our DDC a high risk pregnancy? How are you coping?
