This is a pic of my ultrasound from earlier today. My Dr said that the baby has a cyst. Has anyone had this and what exactly happened. I had anohter post but this is one with the ultra sound. Very worried will be 9 weeks tomorrow.

Yes, my daughter had one and it went away when she was about 27 weeks gestation...sometimes it just happens and most of the time it resolves itself

What kind of ultrasound machine is that? The picture doesn't look very clear. Will they be doing another? It could very easily go away and be nothing at all. They should follow up with a level II ultrasound though.

My daughter had chlorid plexus cysts on her brain, but not until 20 weeks. They went away around 30 weeks on their own.



I have not seen them on a 9 week old fetus :( Im sorry. My doctor said it was a good thing they showed up late, because they would resolve ?

They are called choroid plexus cysts and we had them show up on our ultrasound and when I had another one done it wasn't present... I wouldn't worry too much yet until you get your blood test back.
