Life Threatening? No
Write-up: Conception 2/2/2021 Due date 10/25/2021 This is my second pregnancy. First was a live birth and is a healthy 21 month old. No complications during that pregnancy. At our June 1 anatomy scan, we learned that the baby is healthy and has all expected parts except for the umbilical cord, which has two blood vessels instead of the normal three. This is called SUA (single umbilical artery) and we''re told it occurs in 1/100 pregnancies, and often leads to no other issues. So far, all other genetic and chromosomal scans have come back normal. The doctor explained that the umbilical cord forms and is visible by 8 weeks. The first dose was at 2.5 weeks so if the vaccine could have had an adverse effect on the cord during its formation, I received it within the window that it could have had an effect. Other potential problems are increased likelihood of low birth weight and maternal high blood pressure. All other signals point to a healthy mom and child so far.
