Hi Everyone. I am new to this so I'm just going to explain what I'm going through. Recently I had my 20 week ultrasound and everything looked okay other than the fact that my baby has bilateral choroid plexus cysts on his brain and a short nasal bone. I am told these are both markers for down syndrome and I am meeting with another doctor for genetic counseling on the 27th to discuss further testing options to get a definite answer. I am freaking out as this is my first baby and everything was going so well before this. My excitement of having my sweet baby boy has dwindled to swollen eyes from crying so much. My quad screen was negative: 1:3900 for Down syndrome and 1:23000 for trisomy 18. Less than 1% for both. i'm just looking for any consolation or anything mommas who have had these same issues with their babies. Anything will Help!
