So here is my post from in my DDC (easier than trying to retype it out):

Two choroid plexus cysts were noted on my baby's head. They apparently occur in 1/100 pregnancies and typically are not an issue. But given the issues they had with his/her position (SUPER low, head on my cervix), they couldn't see the cavum, they are recommending another ultrasound at the high-risk hospital (McMaster). Essentially if there is any malformation in the cavum, combined with the cysts, that is considered a soft marker for Trisonomy 18. I have absolutely no other markers, and my midwife is pretty sure the ultrasound place is just covering themselves from a liability point of view. We are waiting to see if the high-risk hospital will see me, or if they'll tell me to not waste their time (especially as I am under 35). I went ahead and got a blood test done that will tell me a better chance of Trisonomy 18.

So that's where we are right now. I'm a little stressed out and my midwife said not to google and so far I've held out.
