So I told you the best news from my appointment on Thursday in my last post.
Other good news: The doctor said that the subchronic hemorrhage has cleared up. (That was what they'd found on my 7 and 10 week ultrasounds.)
She did though find one area to watch on this ultrasound. She said she wouldn't have even told us, but it was in the report and she didn't want us to worry. (And again I was told not to Google it...)
They saw a Chroroid Plexus Cyst. It is a small cyst in the baby's brain. There is a very small (and from what I can tell controversial) connection between these cysts and Trisomy 18. On the plus side, but blood work came back with a 1 in 10,000 risk of Trisomy 18. The ultrasound also showed our little girl is a good size and has normal hands and feet. (Babies with Trisomy 18 tend to be small and have clenched fists.)
The doctor said that the only way to rule it out would be to do an amnio, but with the blood work and the baby's size she didn't feel it was necessary. It was the high-risk OB who was doing the test, so if she says not to worry I am okay with that! These cysts usually clear up on their own.
I think both of my "do not Google" diagnoses are the result of technology catching things we never knew were there before! On the plus side, I get an extra ultrasound in a month to monitor it.
So for now we are saying extra prayers, but not worrying about it. I go back to my regular OB tomorrow so I'll get her thoughts on it as well.
Now I better get planning...I have 3 hours or so to plan my drama lessons for today. = )
