    Knot in umbilical cord
    satinswhite posted:
    I'm 9 months pregnant and have had so many complications, my feet and hands are red , irritated, painful, and itchy, yet my blood pressure is fine. I don't have diabetes, but my feet get so swollen anytime I'm on them longer then 20 minutes. To top it off there is a knot in the umbelicol cord. It's a lose knot so blood is still flowing through it. I'm kinda scared that I'll have to get an emergency c section or my son will come out with something wrong because of little oxygen to his brain while giving birth. Any suggestions
