Well I finally heard back from my doctor after leaving a message on Thursday [very unlike the dr's office but they still got an ear full]. A cyst was found on the placenta at the the cord insertion during the NT Scan. While cysts are normally not a problem the location of this one can cause asphyxiation or growth retardation if it compresses the cord. The dr at the imaging place was very vague and I was in shock so I left with a lot of questions.
I talked with my dr today and she said that normally these cysts get reabsorbed but if it doesn't or continues to grow they are going to be very proactive. I am being treated as a partial cord insertion [which it is not]. This means ultrasounds every four weeks until 30 weeks then once a week for the remainder of the pregnancy. I'll also have a stress test at some point. She said fortunately these cysts if they do cause a problem don't until the third tri. At that point they would probably deliver the baby early either by induction or C section [depending how many weeks and the health of the baby]. If the cyst grows larger before third tri and becomes a problem they can go in and drain the cyst though she's never seen it come to that.
So I feel a little better knowing what options we may be facing. There's really nothing that can be done or said at this point. We'll know more when I go back on July 8th. Any continued TP'S you guys can spare would be greatly appreciated.
