She also told me that they noticed a choroid plexus cyst (CPC) on the baby's brain. She said these are very common and usually go away on their own with no issues or complications. She said that in 0.2% (that's 0.002) of cases it could be linked to chromosomal abnormalities. But generally nothing to worry about is what we've been told. I am not very concerned about this, but would love you to join us in praying that it goes away with no problems.
- Between 1 and 3 percent of all fetuses will manifest a CPC at 16 to 24 weeks of pregnancy
- Regardless of their number, shape or size, choroid plexus cysts are not harmful to the baby
- Nearly always go away by the third trimester of pregnancy
- The fetal brain may create these cysts as a normal part of development
Praying for a healthy rest of this pregnancy with no more ER visits or abnormal ultrasound discoveries!
