High-Risk Pregnancy

Pyelectasis?

I had my ultrasound today (Team Blue, FTW!) and my little man Alex evidently has fluid around his kidneys. I am giving birth with a midwife, but didn't have a chance to discuss the findings of the ultrasound with her yet. (My appointment got rescheduled for later today because another patient went into labor.) The Doc who originally looked over the scans informed me the pyelectasis may indicate a chromosomal disorder... Downs Syndrome. After coming home and doing some research,  if it doesn't resolve itself in pregnancy, diagnosis is hydronephrosis. Has anyone else had the pyelectasis finding? What was your outcome, or how is it progressing? I have a follow up u/s in nine weeks.
