So I've made it to 34 weeks 3 days... baby looks great, no bp issues yet or anything pre-e which is great. I really was doing pretty well... then we had our growth scan yesterday. Of course our regular MFM had to be at the hospital so we had to see the other one... that did not go well. He informed us baby had nuchal cord, then spat out some stupid statistics that I don't really care about (because what loss mom does?) and then practically ran out of the room. No time for us to ask questions... he didn't even look at baby or cord flow himself. After this I talked to my regular OB who said he read the report and isn't one bit concerned. I still feel like I total mess though... I know women who lost their babies and whose autopsy reports identify nuchal cord as the cause of death so I don't understand why nobody is concerned.
I KNOW it's common, I know it's not a big deal for many many people... but I'm just terrified now. I'm going to talk to my regular MFM today just so I have all of the opinions, and ask him about getting another u/s next week because if it resolves itself I would want to know so I can calm the * down... but is there anything you can say to make me feel better?? Personal experiences with a nuchal cord spotted on an u/s?
