Where does the belly button connect inside the tummy?

A fetus gets nutrients through the imbilical cord which is attatched to the placenta.... I get that, but on the inside of the fetus' stomach, what does the imbilical cord attatched to? Obviously it doesn't just pump loads of blood into the baby's abdomen. So my question is: Does the imbilical cord (on the inside of baby's tummy) attatch somehow to the intestines or a major blood supply? Sorry if this comes accross as pretty stupid, I just really don't know.
