Cord already wrapped around his neck at 19 weeks!

I'm 24.5 weeks pregnant now but my OB-GYN just told me a few days ago that at my 19 week ultrasound, the umbilical cord was already wrapped around his neck. She said this is only the third time in 19 years that she's seen this this early (I asked, she didn't tell me this to scare me) and said not to worry yet because he's still small enough that he may untangle himself. Anyone else ever run into this with their previous babies?

My first daughter had this too. Not sure if it was smart of me or not, but I ate sugar so she'd wiggle around more. lol. They just did another ultrasound in a few weeks. She'd untangled herself and all was fine. They're pretty slippery in there. I think he'll be just fine. :) They'll probably just do another ultrasound here and there until it's unwrapped.
