Hi, There are chances for your baby to turn and uncoil himself/herself, since baby would turn in the womb up to 37 weeks of gestation. Even if the cord is round the neck, it is usually long enough to avoid constriction. If there is constriction, there would be distress in the baby which can be made out by a decrease in the fetal movements, CTG etc, change in color of liqor amniontis. Cesarean section are rarely indicated (only if fetal distress). We suggest you to do a regular follow up with your doctor and go with her/her suggestions.
