Dilated kidneys


I had a scan done at 21 weeks and it was found that my baby had dilated kidneys.
I am due to have another scan in a couple of weeks and am getting pretty nervous about it....hoping that my baby's kidneys are normal and healthy now.
Has any body else been through this?

Yes, my first baby had this picked up at the 20 week scan. We had another scan at 34 and then 36 weeks and it was the same both times, no better no worse. We had to give her a tiny dose of antibiotics daily from birth to prevent UTIs in case the dilation was caused by kidney reflux, which is left untreated could cause problems.

She was scanned at a week old (same) and then again at 8 months (the dilation had gone.)

Don't google. It is very common, seen in 1 in 20 pregnancies apparently.

Hi Kirst76,

We also had our re-scan on 13 Feb and both kidneys were measuring normal (gone down to 4mm), excellent result x

hello. I'm in 31 weeks now. I had my 4D ultrasound yesterday. It was going well until the sonologist said my baby girl has a mild pyelectasis in the left kidney (0.84cm). I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow but I am distraught since learning about that condition. It got worse when I read in the internet it is a soft marker for Down's syndrome. I remember my Congenital anomaly scan last month, when the sonologist sought advise from another sonologist about the nuchal thickness, which is alo a marker for DS. Although, she decided that it was within the normal range, I am so worried now. I am 34 years old which makes the odds higher and this is my first baby. I can't help but cry. I know anxiety is bad for me and my baby but I can't help it.
