An umbilical cord
seen around the fetus’ neck early in pregnancy
does not increase the likelihood of a problem, and the chance of damaging the baby is very small.
Since the fetus moves a lot inside the uterus
, the umbilical cord can get wrapped and unwrapped many times throughout the pregnancy around the baby.
Since there is less fluid present,the decreased fluid could prevent the fetus from moving and it could also compress the cord because the amniotic fluid
usually acts as a cushion, causing concern about a possible cord accident.
But you should not worry as doctors monitor the pregnancy closely during the last months of the pregnancy and would be there to help prevent any complication.
Just relax and be in touch with your doctor regularly.
