Please help - 3rd Ventricle Enlarged

Can a doctor please give me some medical advise.  I cant stop stressing.
At my 22 week ultrasound my baby had corpus plexus cysts on its membrain.  My obstetrician suggested I have another ultrasound at 33 weeks to make sure they resolved themselves, which they did.  However, now they found that the 3rd Ventricle of my Babys Brain is enlarged.  The Lateral Ventricles are normal and everything is flowing as it should be.  I had another ultrasound at 35 weeks and the 3rd Ventricle is still enlarged but everything else is the same.  Can someone please tell me what this all means?  Will my baby be brain damaged?  The ultrasound specialist suggested that once they baby is born we scan the brain then.  Im scared that the 3rd Ventricle will get bigger in the meantime and could cause damage by the time my baby is born.  

The specialist also said this case is very rare, but thats all I got from him.  What are the implications of my babys health? Would it be safer for my baby if I have a cesarian?
