  • wiggle worm syndrome.. they are doing all kinds of flips in there and playing with the cord so I think it is more amazing when the baby doesn't have the cord wrapped around them somehow lol

  • Babies move around in utero. A cord can be pretty long and get wrapped around them. A nuchal cord happens in about 1/3 of pregnancies and is usually not a problem.

  • I would assume it's because they move?

  • My son had a double cord wrapped around his neck when he was born. The doctor says she thinks it happened when he turned upside down to stay.
