Dilated kidneys, echogenic bowel and 7.3mm nuchal oedema, reassurance needed.


I had my 20 week scan on Monday, at 20 weeks exactly and found out we're having a boy
A few problems were picked up, he has dilated kidneys, an echogenic bowel and his nuchal oedema is measuring 7.3mm. All of these can mean something or nothing, I was just taken aback that there were three things wrong and two are soft markers we had our screening at 12 weeks and the results were 1 in 26,000.
I have been referred to the Fetal Medicine unit at Birmingham Women's Hospital and have an appointment there for more scanning at 3pm today. I'm quite nervous and scared. Has anyone any experience with these things? How did everything turn out?
Any help or advice appreciated. I'm a first time mum and no-one I know has had similar problems so I'm a bit overwhelmed.

I dont have any experience, but we were given a 1:20 chance of downs syndrome after our nt screening, so i do know how you must be feeling at the moment. We opted for an amnio and the final results came back today and she is healthy.

I am so sorry you are going through this, hopefully it will just be an awful fright like it was for me. Hope everything goes well at your appointment today xxxx

Everything went well, the baby was fine, his kidneys and nuchal oedema were fine and his bowel is bright but the doctor said its very unlikely that anything is wrong, we've had our blood tests for cystic fibrosis but its very unlikely he has that or anything else. I'm so relieved, couldn't be happier can't wait to meet my beautiful boy xxx
