I had my ultrasound today (I'm 20 weeks). We're very excited to be adding another girl to our family (due on July 4th)! Anna was convinced all along that she was having a sister so no surprise to her! She did go to the appointment with us and when we left the ultrasound lab to wait to see the doctor she asked me where the baby was. Guess she thought we'd be bringing her home today! Wish it was that easy!!
The baby looked good but they did find two choroid plexus cysts. These are fluid filled cysts in the brain that are markers for trisomy 18. Fortunately, the doctor said that most of the time by weeks 28-32 they will disappear with no negative consequences to the baby. They will do another ultrasound in 8 weeks. Please pray with us for a healthy baby girl!
