Hi everyone. I am currently 17 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby, and last week he was diagnosed with a blockage of the urethra. Initially the MFM diagnosed him with a complete bladder blockage, and gave us the worst case scenario speech (no lung development, kidney damage, etc.) so we then got a second opinion and it was clarified that it seems to be a blockage of the lower part of the urethra. Basically, there is an anterior urethral valve, which is extremely rare. His penis appeared to have a lot of fluid in it on the ultrasound.
I'm pretty worried about what this will mean for the little guy in the future, and I will now get weekly ultrasounds to check on things and see if my amniotic fluid levels are OK. As of last Friday, they were normal. I imagine no one has dealt with this issue, as even Dr. google reveals very little about it. It seems the most similar disorder is PUV - which can result in similar outcomes.
