In brief: Snapshot in time

This just means you need to be in close contact.
If babies been growing nl this should be ok. I've had healthy infants with up to 5 neck wraps or 2 true knots. They are worrisome and suggest the child may not do well in labor with the increased stress.A c-section delivery is more likely and an early trip to the l&d area anytime you think you are having contractions is worth considering.
