I think I introduced my self few months ago when recently learned that I had conceived again, since I had two previous losses I decided to step aside from all kind of information since it was making me uneasy. I started reading again your posts and hope to stay here for the rest of my pregnancy, we're having a girl.
Two weeks ago I went for my second trimester u/s and we were told that my baby looks good, no body malformations and we also know that she doesn't have any trisomy problems (CVS at 11 wks confirmed a healthy girl). But at this last u/s they found she only has one artery instead of the normal two all the umbilical cords have, off course I read all I could about it and what I learned is that most of babies with this umbilical malformation are born okay (like 75% of them) but wondering if any of you have this situation and what your dr has to say about it, outcome??.
I have to see my ob this friday (couldn't see her before since she was out on vacation), I had tried to keep my self calm but scares me so much to think that my baby may have kidney, digestive or neurological problems (the most common with this situation).
