Anyone else have baby with cord over his face?

I was at the OB today and both the regular ultrasound and the 4D showed that the umbilical cord is draped across the baby's mouth. In a way it freaks me out a little, but I'm guessing it's nothing to be worried about...

Both his hands are down playing with his feet. :-)

  • My middle son had it wrapped twice around his neck. I just had to stop pushing for them to get it off, he was fine!

  • Babies move, cords move, Nature/God designed things this way~ not a problem.

  • My son had his wrapped three times around his neck as he was born. It was scary and my midwife told me that when I started pushing and his heart rate dropped and DIDN'T return to where it had been after the first couple pushes she knew and if she didn't think I could have him out in less then 30 minutes she would have been suggesting a c-section. Needless to say it was about 02 minutes and he was out and I had no idea about any of this until AFTER the birth. His apgar was 9 immediately after birth so no worries and he is now 5 years old and no issues at all.

  • It is normal, they sometimes chew on it from what I understand. Atleast that is what my friend told me when I saw her ultrasound pictures with Jazleens cord by her mouth!
