Welcome to healthcare magic;
Repeat ultrasound at 38th week of pregnancy,if that report shows cord around neck,then the problem will occur at the time of delivery-if the cord is tight around neck,it will strangulate the fetus and the heart beat of fetus will drop causing asphyxia & even death of foetus.To save the fetus doctor will advise you C-SECTION.Cord around neck also causes prolonged labour due to non descent of the foetal head.
Wish you luck.

Radiologist Dr. Radha Narayanan's  Response
nuchal cord occurs when the umbilical cord becomes wrapped around the fetal neck 360 degrees. Nuchal cords are very common, with prevalence rates of 6% to 37%. Up to half of nuchal cords resolve before delivery.It is problematic if there are multiple cords,tight cords which can encircle fetal neck and cause asphyxia .
