    My sister is 12 wks pregnant. She had a 3d sono done today We got some bad news. They said the baby has Cystic Hygroma an it appears the cyst may have pushed part of the baby's brain out.

    I've been reading about it online. Looks like there is a pretty high chance the baby has a chromosome abnormality like Turner's syndrome or Down's.

    Anyone else have experience with- this? I'm so scared for my sister and that sweet baby.

    Not good. It sounds like a waiting game is needed. Here's hoping that they are either mistaken, or it resorbs.
