We just got our ultrasound results from my doctor and she told us they found a choroid plexus cyst in babies brain. I am absolutely freaked out and have been bawling all morning. Apparently these cysts can be an indicator for Trisomy 18 especially when other abnormalities are present. The tech got a good look at baby's hands, feet and face, which all looked fine, but I need to go back for another detailed scan to look at babies heart and kidneys. Baby was not cooperating so the tech could not look at them well enough.
The worst is that we have to wait until August 24th for another ultrasound and then won't find out until Aug 25th what the results are!! This will be the longest 3 weeks of my life!They are hoping the cyst will be resolved by then. I am absolutely beside myself with worry because even if the cysts are gone and no other abnormalities are found, apparently the risk of Trisomy 18 is increased (1 in 300 instead of 1 in 3000) just by the cysts being present at this stage. I don't even know how to get through this day let alone the next three weeks I am so sick with worry.
