Umbilical cord problems

I was just told that the umbilical cord only has two blood vessels instead of three. And with some pregnancy where the umbilical cord only has two blood vessels the baby has kidney problems. So I was wondering how many other mother's have had a two blood vessel umbilical cord and did your baby have any problems or was everything fine

  • I haven't had this issue, but many of these babies end up being very healthy. Not all, but many do. I can definitely understand your concerns! Hopefully, your baby will be just fine!!

  • I had a single artery cord with my youngest- he was the smallest of my babies (7lbs even), but otherwise perfectly healthy.

  • I have no idea about this but I think they would have told you if it was a major concern.

    Best wishes!
