Anatomy scan results

Found out today we are having another boy :sleepyboy: My clinic wants me to do a follow up scan somewhere else with better machines to check on possible kidney cyst and opening between heart ventricles. OB told us not to lose sleep over these things so I'm trying not to worry and just look forward to seeing the baby again in couple of weeks. DS still has no idea he has a little brother on the way though he is enjoying the blue balloons we brought home after the scan to announce the gender to him and my mom. I'm sure my mom deep down wanted a little granddaughter to outfit in cute pink clothes and bows, but I think it will be fun to have two little guys so close in age.

Congrats on another boy! KUP but I'm sure everything will be fine at the second scan. Smile

How fun, two boys, congrats! I was thinking it would be nice to have a girl but I would also love another boy. It would be so fun for DS to have a brother!
Hope you can keep calm about the scan results... it's not easy but most likely will be nothing. Keep us posted.

I put an update in my Feb 2014 board about 2nd u/s findings and such. Long story short, they found some things of concern on 2nd u/s too (CPC, VSD, pelvic cyst) but my later amnio results came back normal. They offered DNA microarray but I think we will decline it. This past week has been so emotional for me and I'm just ready to move on with this pregnancy and deal with what may come or not. This has been hard because I was holding out a hope for a uneventful pregnancy this time around, but I guess not in the cards for us. I just hope the birth and everything after is uneventful or at least manageable.

ETA: we have follow up u/s in late Dec and will likely have consult with pediatric cardiologist around then too

I'm sorry to hear that and how stressful it's been. Keeping you in my thoughts and hoping that these issues will resolve and the rest of the pregnancy and the newborn stage will be uneventful!!!

I'm cross-posting from my other board. My OB clinic had me come in for another ultrasound today to check on growth and such. The tech was able to check on a few of the areas of concern though her machine cannot check the heart with as much detail as the MFM machines. She thought the choroid plexus cyst looked like it had resolved. The bowel cyst she had a harder time locating this time around but when she did find it she thought *maybe* it looked smaller and at the very least had not become larger and more pronounced. Regarding the heart she thought she still saw an area suspect for a small VSD still but she said the fluid surrounding the heart looked fine. Overall body growth and size on schedule. So that was some good reassurance and I've been feeling so much better about the whole thing this past week. We'll get more info at our next detailed u/s and heart echo in late December so I'm hoping things continue to look better for baby's health.
