Unborn baby Kidney's are larger in size!?


Dear All,
My friend is 32 Weeks pregnent, she had scane last week and been told that baby's both kidneys are larger than normal.
Plus there is absolutely no water around baby. No sign of water leaking during pregnancy. Doctor says, it could be because of baby's kidney's that are5.2 and 5.6
Please share with me if you, friend or anu other person know has gone through same, what was the result at the birth. Did baby survived after birth?
Please reply, if you know anything. Serious Answer please.
Many Many Thanks for your kind reply's.

hi!! im sorry to hear that....im a NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE NURSE, usually if the fluid is low and the kidneys are large there is some sort of blockage somewhere between the kidney and the ureters that drain the fluid into the bladder for the baby to pee back out........therefore it backs up into the kidney making them large. because the baby isnt peeing it back out into this is why there is a lack of fliud.......from my experience this does effect the kidneys, but the blockage can be fixed after birth.
the real concern is that same fluid is also breathed into the lungs helping them grow and develop, so if the fluid is low the babys lungs may be very small or underdeveloped which can cause serious problems after birth.....some who do not live for long because of their underdeveloped lungs. if her doctor noticed low fluid and bigger kidneys they should be able to do a saline infusion into your uterus to help replace some of that fluid to help the lungs, that is the main concern at this time as they need that fluid for their lungs to grow. i hope this helped.
