A little scare, but all is well

November 16, 2011 in wordful wednesday

At our 20 week ultrasound, we found out that we were adding a third precious little girl to our family.

However, what I didn’t mention is that we also learned that our baby had two cysts in her head.  We decided that we would keep it between us and God and pray that everything was okay.  I had an overwhelming sense of peace about it and knew that everything was 100% okay with our little girl.  But, it is customary to go see a specialist just to make sure.

So, we went to the specialist at the beginning of October. She told us that yes the cysts are there and they can be a sign of Trisomy-18, but there are absolutely no other signs and everything else looks wonderful.

She suggested we come back in 6 weeks (today) just so she can “prove the cysts are gone.”

Today, she did just as she said.  The cysts are gone.  Our baby girl looks absolutely perfect.  She was sticking her tongue out and even looked like she was smooching her face up against some glass and rubbing her lips on it.

Most important thing we heard?  “Your baby looks great.  Everything looks good and I don’t need to see you again (unless we have to figure out a plan for your low platelets)!”

Second best thing?  We got to see our baby girl again.  We think she has Aunt Emily’s nose and daddy’s lips!

And, she has daddy’s feet and toes, too!

We are very thankful for our happy, and healthy baby girl.

So glad everything is okay. My SIL had this happen to her little girl a few months ago. They to went away after awhile. It was very scary even as the auntie, I can’t imagine being the parent!! Prayers do work!! Yay for baby girl and your family.

Yes, super scary! We actually didn’t tell our families so they wouldn’t worry..hoping and knowing they wouldn’t have anything to worry about.

Thrilled to hear all is well and drooling over those ultrasounds (and grateful for your descriptions, those pics are always disorienting at first).

My mom and stepdad have no idea what they are looking at. I always like to send it to them without any descriptions, just to see what they think!

We had the same thing with both of my kids. (In fact with Caitlin the cyst never went away, but they have assured me that it is nothing to worry about!) I remember being SO worried about it! The doctor made me promise not to google it. My OB told me multiple times that she thinks it is something that is very common that we only notice these days because the technology has improved so much. I was happy to have an extra ultrasound out of it, but I remember the worry!

I’m thrilled to hear things are going well! Praying for you and your family!

Yes, it’s so scary. I wish they wouldn’t look for it because it seems to just cause extra stress and fear in moms!

I know…less than 10 weeks until my due date! I can’t believe it (although, in about 6 weeks, I’m going to be complaining that 4 weeks can’t get here soon enough.)

I was so glad I had it, too, because I am the biggest worrier, but I just knew I didn’t have to worry about this!
