18w loss to Hypercoiled cord


We lost our Eliana at 18w on June 20th. We waited weeks upon weeks for her pathology and finally it came back that she was completely healthy (after a T18 loss at 14w, this was a big concern) and that the only thing they found was that her umbilical cord was hypercoiled to the point that it was hair thin at her belly button. My heart broke all over again with this news and I've been struggling with it daily since.

My doctor assured me that this would never happen to us again, but that if I fell pregnant again, I would be under a lot of monitoring with an MFM and high risk OB rather than herself. My worry is that it WILL happen again. Has anyone gone through this and gone on to carry to term healthily? This or any other cord anomaly, really.

I think you should be monitored closely with your next pregnancy, I think if you take and your doctor all the steps it will be ok.. It was a fluke, it wont happen again..

Thank you so much

I really want to believe that my next bfp will result in a healthy baby in my arms. I know the chemicals and T18 and the cord anomaly were all flukes, but my fear is yet another fluke. How many times can lightning strike one person?

My heart aches for you. I didn't lose my daughter to a cord accident but rather a incompetent cervix at 20 weeks. It also really hurt to know that she was healthy.

I also had a MMC at 10 weeks due to T18 and two back to back chemical pregnancies. I now have healthy son.

I have faith that you will have a healthy little one in your arms soon.

This made me cry. I am so sorry for your losses! Our instances seem so similar! I am so glad you have your little boy now and it makes me very hopeful that I'll get my happy ending as well.
