They assured me that it is no big dea, and that they're just going to check it again at 32 weeks during another ultrasound.

ITA, Chelsey. We didn't want an amnio when ours came up. Not worth the risk and it wouldn't change our plan of action (have the baby and then love him) anyway. He actually had one other soft marker of a chromosome anomaly and still is a completely bright, active, sweet and normal 5 1/2 year old. Your LO has my prayers, but I'd bet money on him being just fine. Good luck!

Thanks for the great info!!

Honestly, it doesn't matter. I mean, for planning purposes it matters, but healthy or not, this baby is loved and always will be. If God has planned for us to have a sick LO then that's what we'll take. Of course we're praying he'll be healthy, but we're prepared either way. Children are a blessing, no matter what package them come in :-)

My son had bilateral choroid plexus cysts on prenatal U/S.

I'm glad Brie was able to dig up some positive info, and that you also have a great outlook.

They said that it isn't a big deal at all, so I'm just not going to worry. God has a good plan for this little one, healthy or not :-)

Sending "dissapearing cyst" vibes your way! I hope your doctor is right about this not being a big deal. I'm sure he is! Stay strong, momma!

Doing just a bit of research and I came up with a CPC, which isn't a problematic cyst: http://www.babyzone.com/pregnancy/prenatal-care/choroid-plexus-cyst_71106 and then a CPC group of sorts: http://choroidplexuscyst.org/

If this is what the doc saw, then it probably isn't anything to really worry about. And, I've read that they're usually gone by 32w, which is probably why that's when he'll check again. A long time to wait, for sure, so hopefully time will go by fast for you and you'll find that all is well in there.

Keeping happy thoughts for you and babe just the same!
