Knots in the cord

Have you had a baby that had a knoted cord? My 2nd had 2 knots and my 4th had 1. I also have a friend that had one. Just wondering how common it is? I know that it could be dangerous, But my doc's didnt seem to worry about it. My mom even took pictures.

  • That's wierd.... I guess as long as blood flow is getting through, its no big. It's probably cause from baby doing cartwheels in the belly!

  • I have never heard of that. Crazy. My sister had her cord wrapped around her neck a couple times and was fine, but knots? I would take pictures too! I am assuming your kids are ok?

  • They were 100% normal both times

  • Good! I didn't want to say something stupid if they weren't. It is very interesting and fascinating. But I am truly fascinated with pregnancy, birth, and babies. :)

  • I think it's fairly common, actually. My husband apparently had two in his cord.
