It is too early to find the marginal cord insertion at 13 weeks because the placenta doesn't form well yet. You don't worry about it now. You should wait and have ultrasound at the second or third trimesters.
Expert:  khagihara replied 5 months ago.
Choroid plexus cysts are common sonographic findings during the second trimester. They usually disappear by the third trimester; those that persist are usually asymptomatic and benign.
Expert:  khagihara replied 5 months ago.
Isolated choroid plexus cysts detected prenatally are not associated with adverse long-term developmental outcomes. However, fetuses with choroid plexus cysts and additional anomalies are at increased risk of chromosomal abnormalities, especially trisomy 18. A thorough fetal anatomic survey is important when these cysts are detected with additional anomalies. If your baby has additional abnormality, you should have cell-free DNA test in your blood which is not invasive.
