Dilated fetal kidneys, and two measurements - head (measuring bigger) and femur I believe (measuring shorter)so with those 3 components together there's a risk of downs syndrome. I'm 20 weeks now, we met with a genetic councilor yesterday and I took a blood test that will take 7-10 days to get back to see if it's negative or positive looking for chromosome 21 (downs) . Pretty shocking and scary stuff to be faced with. I am looking for support or anyone that can relate at all with any of this. It's between my husband and I right now so it's been weighing on me. Of course they say there is a small chance and everything can resolve on its own. I have a follow up 28 wk ultrasound to check on the kidneys , that's not until April 11th. Just the waiting game is what is tough and not knowing what's going on.
I'm 29, we have a 100% healthy 3 yr old son who when I was pregnant with the only concern was the Dilated fetal kidney which is common in boys and most of the time goes away on its own. And I had 2 hi risk visits/ ultrasounds with that pregnancy and by 28wks it resolved. So that's a relief because they said sometimes if you have it once in pregnancy for the next (and were having another boy)it can come up again.
Any other groups that anyone can recommend for this would be great and appreciated too. Thank you.
