Pregnancy complications, if they check the umbilical cord would the doctors/ ultrasound tech check for knots in the cord?

A lot of the embryonic work goes on in a mass of tissue attached to a thick stalk. At about 30 days a crude cord is forming. The fetal cord has the ability to grow longer under tension.
