Choroid Plexus Cyst Update

We went yesterday to see a Maternal and Fetal Specialist to do a more in-depth ultrasound of the baby girl. He looked for the Choroid Plexus Cyst and said he thought he saw some reminisce of the cyst, but it looked like it was dissipating. He also looked for other signs/symptoms for other problems that she may have, but he did not find anything. He said everything looks good and he wants us to go back after 28 weeks to do another ultra-sound to make sure that the cyst has complete dissipated. The news was great and relieved a great deal of anxiety for both of us.We are both more relaxed and hoping for even better news after the next ultrasound.

There is one piece of good news - we got some more beautiful picture of the baby girl. She put on a show for us while we were there. She was not that photogenic and it seemed like the Doctors were interrupting her nap because she kept yawning and putting her hand in her mouth. The Doctor must have woke her up at one point while he was trying to check her feet for Mermaid Syndrome (where her feet could have been connected). He was trying to make her move her feet and he kept shaking her until she finally moved. It was pretty cool how much detail can be determined and seen during the ultra-sound. It was pretty amazing and we are filled with joy that there isn’t anything wrong.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Hey there... just randomly found your blog when I googled "chroid plexus cyst + blogs". I had an appointment today at 20 weeks and I've been crying all day... just wondering if you would be willing to email me so I can talk to someone who went through it...
