My LO has enlarged kidneys, it is not the same problem but I am assuming they are similar. The doctors seem pretty sure that at worst, LO will need surgery, and at best, it will go away on its own or just need monitoring after birth. It's not the exact same so I don't want to give you false hope if it is from different causes, but I would have to assume the bladder would be the same. I know google is not normally your friend when you are worried, but for the kidney issues I have actually found it helpful.

Thank you for the response.
I've google and have a better understanding now. Plus met w/ OB today and he said that we will have to wait and see at the 16 week scan. He did state that it was draining but just slower rate so there's likely blockage to what extent is too early to say. I'm hopeful and praying that it'll resolve on its own. We are pretty confident that this is not a chromosome abnormality issue as we test all chromosomes before we did the embryo transfer and they were all normal. I'm feeling a little bit better but am still anxious for things to be resolved.

Went in for my follow up US today, baby's bladder is normal size and everything is looking great and baby's measuring on track. We are so relieved! We've been very anxious for the past 4 weeks waiting for this day and was hopeful that things would resolve on its own, which it did. Feel very grateful and blessed.

Hi All, Can someone advise whether anyone come across same situation and got positive results. I am expecting my first Twin babies, during 13week s scanning one baby got NT 7.5mm and we have advised to do the selective termination to save other baby, we have done CVS (at Radclif Oxford University) on and the results came as normal, but during our 15weeks+2days scanning this same baby got Enlarged bladder, and doctors advised that this baby is not going to make and also there is a high risk for other baby to do the shunt, I am now 18weeks+4days, have advised to terminate this pregnancy, there is a high risk for other baby for selective termination, dont know what to do, I want my both babies and dont want to terminate this pregnancy at all, I am praying and staying positive. Sleepless nights and totally devasting.
Can someone please kindly advise if you came up with positive outcomes. Thank you.

Our little girl is now 3 months old, and on the outside you would have no idea she has any problems. She has a multicystic displastic kidney which is what caused the kidneys and bladder to be enlarged on u/s when I was pregnant. So far the only thing we have had to do for her is daily antibiotics (since birth) and she will be going for some invasive tests this Tuesday, which may lead to surgery, but hopefully will just mean monitoring her frequently and continuation of antibiotics possibly. I can only imagine how big of a decision this is for you, I know how hard it was for me just dealing with the news when I was pregnant, as they made me worry about down syndrome and other problems that this is associated with. In the end I decided not even to have the amnio, and just let things be. I am so glad I did, our little girl should be able to live a healthy, almost normal life, just with some extra doctor appointments, and only one kidney. Good luck, and feel free to PM me if you'd like!
