Yay!! I’m so happy that everything is looking good and all the tests came back. Sounds like you have a great doctor.

Now you can relax for the weekend!

@DaneLady:  I am SO happy to hear that everything is okay.

I had the same result on my anatomy scan at 19 weeks — an isolated CPC. I didn’t have the quad marker or triple screen blood test done in time, so I’m a little bit nervous, but everything else looked perfect on the ultrasound, so the nurses I’ve spoken with were very reassuring. One told me she’s seen these CPCs “a million times” on ultrasounds and not once has it ever resulted in Trisomy 13 or 18 (which is not to say that it would never happen, of course, but it was nice to hear). This is also the one time in the history of my “medical Googling” that I’ve been reassured by what I’ve read.

I won’t see my doctor until next Friday, but I’m planning to request a level II ultrasound anyway if she doesn’t offer it — just to see how things are looking again in a few weeks. Thanks for this post — there are a few of us in the March mamas group who’ve had similar scares, so it’s nice to hear of a positive outcome!

Glad everything came back looking good for you and the baby!

My baby also has a CPC, unfortunately, one of my quad screen markers also came back elevated, which is cause for concern, so I’m being sent on for further testing. I’ll have a level 2 ultrasound this Thursday with a possible amnio depending on what the doctor sees or doesn’t see.

Apologies for typos, as I am on my Android. I read this the day you wrote it, but didn’t want to comment until my own results came back, but I just wanted to say thank you for posting this. It gave me some hope that everything would be olay with my baby’s CPC. When I went to my 21 week follow up appointment last week, I was told that our baby girl had a CPC. I was TERRIFIED. I Googled it and wished I hadn’t. My doctor didn’t seem to be concerned and even told me not to worry, as my bloodwork came back phenomenally good. She told me these cysts usually dissipate on their oen, but you know how it is… you can’t help bubeorry. My husband was the strong one, as I soent many nights worrying about whether or not our little Squishy Muffin would be okay. He seemed fairly certain she was, because we had 4 ultrasounds before that one and ALL of them were normal. But, we’re not doctora and you never know. Yesterday, 11 days after we were told about the CPC, we had a Level II ultrasound and genetic counseling with a perinatologist. Our little girl is “perfectly fine” and her cyst is already gone. I was so happy, I wanted to cry. I wasn’t worried about the cyst, but I was worried about T18 and T21. She showed no other signs and now my worries are gone and I can finally sleep! An interesting thing our perinatologist told me what that in 25 years of practice, she has seen “thousands” of CPC’s and they are usually in slender, first time mothers. Reason being is because the slenderness of the mother, compared with a uterus that has no scar tissue from a previous pregnancy makes the cysts easier to see. This would be true in my case. She said she thinks there are more instances of CPC’s, but in some women, you can’t see them as easily. Sorry for my novel. I just wanted my story to be here in case someone else found this thread. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope everyone that is pregnant that posted here and reads this because they have the same problem, goes on to have a happy, healthy and boring pregnancy!

@DaneLady:  My family and I went througH something very similar.  It was during my 8 month of pregnancy that they found a cyst on my sons spinal cord. We needEd to go to genetic counseling, and ultimately decided to get a amniocentesis to find out what was/ could be wrong (not wrong… for he was my son, you know.) longest 3 weeks of my life. I instructed my doctor when he called to either say “good news, or bad news” because I was so frustrated with all the medical jargon. I got the phone call. I only heard 2 words… Good new… And then proceeded to call everybody without hearing whatever else he had to say. 

I am very happy for you, and I know how scary this is to go through.  


Edited to add, I’m also a Dane girl! A Jensen from Copenhagen.:)
