  • I have a friend who's son was a double vessule cord baby. She was told by her dr that she could abort the baby because of the chances of it having downs syndrome. Her and her dh refused to abort. It was hard on them through the pregnancy, especially my friend. They have a very rambunxious 5 year old boy who is 100% healthy. Be strong.

  • my 2nd was born with a 2-vessell cord.....normally there are 3. He was born perfectly healthy, exactly on his due date - 7lbs 12oz. They did a lot of non-stress tests (nst's) my last month of pregnancy to monitor him, but he was fine. I do know that a 2-vessel cord, along with other signs can be a possible sign of developmental issues during the pregnancy. With mine, it was the only thing "wrong" or "different" and he is now 6 yrs old and not a thing wrong. Don't stress and I will pray for you!!!
