Hi. when i was discharged from hospital after having a healthy daughter I was told of an abnormality in the umbilical chord. I was horrified and asked why i wasnt told when she ws born. They did not tell me because there was no reason to alarm me as my baby was checked and Ok. The abnormailty was the chord only had one artery and one vein (normally they have two veins and one artery). I did not know this, and I dont think many people do. I was then told 5% of babies with this abnormal chord will have heart problems. She was ok anyway. Just thought i would tell this story as its the only thing I know thats remotely to do with your question. My advise is to ask your Doc or do a search in Google, I certainly have not read anything about a 'straight chord' on this site. Good luck..

Hi! My ultrasound last week also showed that I have a "straight" umbilical cord, my doctors know nothing about it, I have never even heard of it. I have been looking on the internet but I cant find much about it.
