Anyone ever had cystic hygroma found in fetus during ultrasound?

I wasn't sure where to put this so if it isn't in the right place please move.

My sil had an u/s today and they found a cystic hygroma in the fetus. Has anyone ever had one of these found and everything be ok? I've been reading a lot about it and it doesn't sound to good, finding one raises chance of genetic defects about 50%.

I didn't personally have one but I believe there was a woman on fertile thoughts that had a child with one. It sounds familiar to me. You could try to post a message there and see if they come out.

Praying for your SIL!

Thank you, the way it sounds it's not looking good. She is 14 weeks, I feel so terrible.

Many prayers for her and her baby.

My daughter had a CH, they thought it was due to a chromosome defect but it wasn't. It was most likely due to her heart defect. Her CH was very large @ 18w but had shrunk down to just a bit of extra skin by birth. My daughter didn't make it. BUT I've have personally spoke to many mommas out there that their babies only problem was the CH and it resolved itself before birth.

Was there any other issues seen in the u/s?

They said the fluid was in the abdomen and also the fluid looked like a halo around the babys head. SS about your dd .
