S. asks from Spring, TX on September 01, 2007
Hi, I'm 22 weeks along in my pregnancy with a precious baby boy. At my 20-week ultrasound they found that I have venous lakes (pool of blood in the plecenta) and that my baby has pyelectasis (fluid in his kidneys) and choroid plexus cysts in both hemispheres of his brain. I was wondering if other people have had babies with these problems and also what the outcome has been in each of these cases. With the choroid plexus cysts the doctor has said that she hasn't seen any signs of spina bifida, cleft palate, or club feet in the ultrasound. Thank you!

I also had a risky pregnancy. What I did was that I left everything into God hands. I said to him " I love my little boy and if you want me to have him with me I will love him and give him all my love here but if you want to take him with you after all he belongs to you ... I will accept everything that you decide for me... he is in your hands and in your hands my soul and all my love for my little man"
Good luck ... I hope the best for that little man and You

Hi S.--I have seen these findings several times in reports from my clients. They all usually resolve closer to term--esp. since your provider sees no other specific problems.
We always expect ultrasound to confirm normal--but sometimes it does present concerns. Probably you will have a perfect baby!

S., My friend had the same thing happen in her pregnancy and by the time she was 7 and 8 months everything seemed to clear up and her little girl is strong and healthy. We all prayed for her faithfully, so I'll do the same for you. Goodluck.

Hi S.. I also had a complicated pregnancy and my daughter was very sick when she was born. First. you have to stay postitive! She had water around her lungs and Her kidney had swollen up to 1/2 the size of her abdomen. I saw both a specialist, and my regular Dr. If I could do it all over I would insist on seeing only the specialist!!! I had my daugher at Memorial Hermann in the woodlands, if you don't go downtown they have the best NICU, and they will transfer. Hnag in ther I will be praying for you. My daughter is turning one next week, and she is a fighter! She is only 13 pounds,and she has some struggles, but we wouldn't tade her for the world!
