First off, let me thank you all for your T&Ps!!
Secondly, today I went back for my follow up ultrasound and LO's kidneys (and everything else) look great!! I thought it was going to be a 3D u/a but turns out it was just a regular one but just much more extensive. The entire anatomy scan was redone and it was more detailed this time. The tech measured EVERYTHING and was very thorough. Right when she measured the kidneys she said they were normal, which is great news! Everything looked good and she's weighing in at 1lb 2 oz! So happy!
Thanks again ladies!!
For those of you that read my gender reveal post from the other day, you already know this. But for those of you that didn't read it, I wanted to make a separate post with this title so that hopefully more people will come forward.I went in for my a/s on Tuesday, found out we've having a girl, and that all is well besides her kidneys being slightly dilated. I was told this was very common and almost always corrects itself before birth.
Yesterday my OB's office called me and I scheduled a 3D ultrasound in two weeks with a specialist. Obviously, I can't help but be worried though, even despite being told this isn't life threatening and that it's very common. Especially when I heard my appointment is scheduled with a perinatologist. Is anyone familiar with this (dilated kidneys)? Having or had a similar experience? The nurse that called me to schedule the appointment said that if, for some reason it doesn't correct itself before birth, then the baby will be referred to a pediatric kidney specialist...OK, then what? TIA!
