We found out via ultrasound at 14w1d that our baby boy has a fluid-filled cyst on each side of his neck. My regular OB doctor (at a small rural clinic) had never seen anything like it before and referred us to a perinatologist about 80 miles away. I posted a while back asking for advice/similar experiences, but no one seems to know anything about this condition. I have only found very limited information on the Internet after doing hundreds of searches, and even that info doesn't seem to be exactly what we're dealing with. We have been waiting three weeks with no insight at all, but we finally get to have our Level II ultrasound, consultation with the perinatologist, and possible amnio tomorrow. I almost think that whatever we find out at this point, it will just be a relief to KNOW after so many days of wondering and worrying. It can't possibly be something worse than I have already imagined. Anyway, if you pray, please say a little prayer that our little guy is healthy and not in pain and that our testing goes well tomorrow.

Thinking of you, Lindsay - how anxious you must be. I'm praying all is well and you get lots of good news tomorrow (and no need for amnio!)<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I also hope that everything will show up just fine tomorrow for your sweet boy. I am sure the waiting and not knowing must feel very stressful!

I somehow missed you were going through this. It must have been a long few weeks of worrying<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> . I will be thinking good thoughts for you tomorrow. There's a good chance that everything is OK.

Praying all turns out well -- that the cysts are gone or cause for no concern, and that the amnio isn't warranted!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">
