    I'm just looking for a bit of reassurance here. We went for our 20 week scan on Friday (we're now 21 +3) and the sonographer found out that Peanut has fluid in his/her kidneys. She told us by starting the sentence with "It's nothing to worry about but...". Why is it that every time someone tells you that, all it does is MAKE you worry? :cry:

    We're booked in for another scan, this time with a consultant, on Wednesday afternoon this week. I just can't stop thinking about it. Although we were told that 9 times out of 10 it's just baby needing a pee to empty kidneys and bladder, I can't help the niggling worry that it's something more serious.

    Anyone else had this at their scan? How did it turn out?

    Thanks in advance!
    Anna

    My 20wk scan showed a problem for me too, had a consultant scan which didn't help either so I've been referred to another hospital for a scan with a specialist:hissy:

    I'm sure all will be fine. I found this answer to your same question on a baby medical site - so try not to worry
    xx

    Fluid in the kidney is a common finding on ultrasounds, especially with boys. The fluid is usually because of the "male plumbing" and sometimes the fluid does not drain as well. So long as there is fluid around the baby and the kidneys otherwise look normal, it should not be a problem.
    The doctor should measure the fluid in the kidney by ultrasound once a month to make sure that there is not increased fluid.
    Usually all that is necessary is an ultrasound of the baby's kidneys once he is born.
