Looking at a picture of the placenta in ultrasound is also very interesting. They will look for where the placenta is located to ensure that you don't have a placenta previa
. They will also note whether or not you have a three vessel cord. A normal umbilical cord will have two arteries and a vein. Occasionally you will see that some babies are born with a two vessel cord
, also known as a Single Umbilical Artery. This can indicate some heart problems, though most of these babies will have a fetal ECHO and be born perfectly healthy.
