    Just had my anatomy yesterday! Looks like I'm having a boy!! 22 weeks today! The technician noticed that one of my baby's kidneys is enlarged ( 6mm compared to the other at 4 mm) and I need to have a follow up ultrasound when I'm 32 weeks. Has anybody else been told this or know what exactly that means?

    Wow sitb trying to fix my comment after I hit post instead of trying to put my cursor somewhere else..... anyways several people on here have had to go back for follow up for various reasons. Did your doc sound concerned or worried? If not I wouldn't be

  • I have to go back on Wednesday for a second look for my AS. I went a few weeks ago and they couldn't get everything they were looking for, so I have to go again this week. Kind of a PITA, but I am also excited to get another peek :)
  • Glad to know I am not the only one waiting. It seems like several of us have it on Wednesday

  • @cmar1006 I hope the week goes by quickly

  • Agreed! I think it causes way too much stress on us, information overload, especially when they have to take a second ultrasound. Keep us happy unless they for sure something is wrong. I've been praying for the last week that my 2nd scan will come back normal, all I can do until then is just pray
  • Had my anatomy ultrasound today (I'm 23 weeks today). Dr said baby's femur measured slightly short and neck measured slightly thick which are possible markers for Down syndrome. We did have genetic (blood) testing done early on and everything came out normal. Dr said he wouldn't worry too much about the measurements since generic tests were normal but I can't help but worry that something is wrong. Anyone have experience with this? Part of me wonders if the doctors are "over testing." I get an ultrasound at every visit (all previous ones have been normal) and the doctor I saw today was a fetal specialist my OB recommends for anatomy scans. The specialist wants me to come back in 4 weeks in addition to seeing my regular OB. Obviously if they see something concerning I want to follow up on it but what's the point in my regular OB giving me an ultrasound if the specialist will give me a more detailed one?
  • If I can ask, how old are you? I'll be 35 just before the baby is born, so the MFM specialist is having me come in for a scan every 4 weeks. It's pretty standard for my age, from what I understand. As for your OB giving you an US at every visit - MFM machines are usually top notch, typically much better than what the OBs have in their offices. I would probably discontinue the ultrasounds for your normal OB visits, unless they have a solid reason for doing them in addition to the MFM scans. Those costs add up quickly.
  • Same here, I'll be 35 next month so I know I do fall into the higher risk range and an ultrasound every month makes sense but 2 ultrasounds a month seems excessive so just doing the MFM may be the way to go. Especially if the regular US won't pick up on abnormalities that the MFM finds. So do you only see the MFM and not a separate OB or do you see both and the MFM only does the US? Thanks for your feedback!!

  • I see both, but only MFM does a scan. I have only had two US with my normal OB - dating scan at almost 8 weeks, and a "freaking out" scan around 10 weeks with some bleeding.

    I mean, it's nice to see baby frequently, but I think I would just tell the OB that I'm already having one every 4 weeks at MFM. My MFM is in the same network as my OB, so they have access to all the same information? They also may decide you don't need them to do it (the OB) since you're getting them from MFM.
