Single Umbilical Artery

0 Replies
Kath - December 2

I'm not yet in my third trimester but wanted to ask advice from those who were. I have just had a scan at 19 weeks and the midwife has just called to say everything looks fine but that the scan could only detect one umbilical artery and one vein when usually there is two umbilical arteries and one vein...if anyone else has heard of or experienced this, please let me know what you know.....apparently sometimes there is a link with defects, particularly the heart or kidneys. I'm sure much of the time there is nothing to worry about but I have been advised to have another scan at 28 weeks to check the baby is growing well. I am a natural worrier and worse than ever since this news and since I had a missed miscarriage with my previous (and only other) pregnancy. Anyone else had/heard of this?
