    So what did the doctor say about it?

    According to another website:

    "The choroid plexus is an area of the brain that is not involved thinking or personality. Rather, the choroid plexus makes a fluid that protects and nourishes the brain and spinal cord. When a fluid-filled space is seen in the choroid plexus during an ultrasound, it is called a choroid plexus cyst (CPC). "We don't know why, but between 1 and 3 percent of all fetuses will manifest a CPC at 16 to 24 weeks of pregnancy," says Dr. Roy A. Filly, a Professor of Radiology and of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences and Chief of the Section of Diagnostic Sonography at University of California, San Francisco...Regardless of their number, shape or size, choroid plexus cysts are not harmful to the baby. "I am not aware of a single instance where a CPC caused damage to a fetus," says Dr. Filly."

    My baby had 2 cpc's in utero, and they went away. Isn't it strange how there is no information about this in any preg books? You shouldn't worry too much about it, they are not harmful, and unless there are anomalies in the hands, feet or heart detected by ultrasound as well, they don't mean anything. They are cysts in the cavities of the brain where the spinal fluid is made.
