Sasha Bo was diagnosed with a rare anomaly that occurs in only 1% of pregnancies
Sasha Bo, a well-known blogger from Ivano-Frankivsk, shared that her pregnancy is anomalous. The influencer said in May 2023 that she is expecting a daughter, and as it turned out, she already knew that there is only one artery in her umbilical cord.
Normally, there should have been 2 arteries and 1 vein, Sasha Bo added. The social media star first made sure that this would not cause any abnormalities in her daughter, and then shared her excitement on Instagram (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The blogger said that this anomaly occurs in 1% of all pregnancies. Doctors assured her that the absence of the second artery would not affect the child's development, but Sasha Bo is still worried.
"I was worried about every single discomfort. I finally got worried when the ultrasound started to differ from the program. The baby seemed to be lagging behind in size. They explained to me that because of this feature, she would be born small but healthy," the influencer wrote.
The independent search for information resulted in new stress for the pregnant celebrity. She read up on possible diseases that a child could have, and then underwent a NIPT, a screening test that allows you to assess the risk of fetal chromosomal abnormalities in early pregnancy.
"The results are excellent. No mutations or disorders, except for the folate cycle gene. I am a carrier. I just had my diet adjusted," Sasha Bo summarized.
According to her, the star's excessive anxiety arose because the blogger's previous pregnancy was terminated before the start of the full-scale war.
