Hello! My name is Cheri, and I'm pregnant with my 3rd child. We just found out on Tuesday that it is another girl!! That makes 3!! This time I have been considered a high risk pregnancy for many different reasons. When we were in for our 18 week sonogram, they found a questionable problem with our little baby's brain. They said that one of the ventricles in her brain is assymetrical, and appears bigger that the other one. They didn't know if it was a problem, error, etc., so they sent me to a specialist for more ultrasounds. After many measurements they determined that the ventricles were in fact the same size, however a part of the brain called the coriplexus (I believe it makes spinal fluid) was in fact appearing a little bit larger on one side, but only in certain images. The Dr. said that it falls within normal range, and everything else (brain, spine, heart, etc) all look fantastic, so it is nothing to worry about. She said it's probably just the way the Baby is laying that makes it look bigger. Of course this is what we wanted to hear... but it's hard for us not to worry and wonder if she is wrong! Has anybody else ever heard of this or experienced this??
