  • I don't know much about this. I'm currently in nursing school working my way toward becoming a midwife and what we've learned so far about the cord is that it's supposed to have to arteries. One bringing blood and supplies in and one taking them out so that it can recycle through your body again.

    I'm guessing that since your 5 months pregnant your body has found some way to adapt to this and provide your baby with nutriant but I'm not sure of the risk that it poses.

    Sorry I couldn't be of much help. I hope someone here has a better answer for you. GOOD LUCK!
