The ultrasound tech called me today about my ultrasound yesterday and said my umbilical cord was off to the side, so now my next appointment i need another ultrasound just to watch the babies growth. She was vague obviously since she wasn't the doctor but I'm not sure what she meant. Is my cord attached to the side of the placenta? Is my baby going to have more of a 3rd nipple than a belly button lol!?
Any ideas?

They need to watch the growth. Some babies don't grow right.

Usually it is in on top so maybe something to do with compression as the baby grows

No the placenta is actually in the right spot already this time. I had placenta previa with my other children but it always took care of itself. I have to call back again tomorrow I'll have to ask because it's driving me crazy!

I thought you said it was off to the side so I must have misunderstood

Sorry no my fault! I shouldn't even try to post when my kiddos are up.
I asked about my placenta since it always covered my cervix before and she said it was nice and high. She explained it so weird my cord is attached on the side. Which made me think of a baby with a belly button on the side. So idk what's attahed where.
