Had our 18wk ultrasound today, we are expecting.....

........A little girl!

Now for the bad news that I can't really tell anyone in real life. The baby has choriod plexis cysts in the brain. We had the exact same thing with DD and she turned out just fine, but the cysts can be an indicator of Trisomy 18 which is not a good thing. I went ahead and had the quad screen done after the ultrasound because if it comes back normal for Trisomy 18 then our chances of our little girl having it are cut in half again. Right now the doctor said the odds are 1 in 610. She had none of the other symptoms of Trisomy 18, like clenched fists or heart problems, so we are cautiously optimistic at this point. Everything else was fine, all her measurements are just as they should be and she was VERY active the ultrasound tech was practically chasing her around my uterus. They even switched to 3D and gave us two print outs of the baby in 3D which was cool.

So keep you fingers crossed and add a prayer for our little girl that the cysts go away and we have a another healthy baby girl just like DD#1. The good news is hopefully we will get to have another ultrasound around 26 weeks to make sure the cysts are gone like we did with DD so we will get to see our little girl again before she is born. I am hoping my doc will order the ultrasound again like he did last time for my piece of mind.

No they did not explain really anything to us this time at all, and next to nothing last time, other than kids with Trisomy 18 don't usually survive.
