My OB/GYNE told me and my husband that our baby has hydronephrosis so they sent us to see a specialist last week. According to the specialist, instead of the fluid coming out of his uterus, there are some fluid that goes back up in his uterus due to an obstruction and as a result, fluids get stored in his kidneys. They measured the amount of fluid in his kidneys and it ranges from 6-7cm, according to the doctor, we don't have to worry that much as long as the fluid is NOT more than 10cm. So now, I have to see specialist (aside from my OB/GYNE) once a month to monitor the baby's kidneys through ultrasound as there is a tendency that the amount of fluid might get higher (i hope not) or lower. I am glad though that a specialist from Riley's Children Hospital will monitor the baby next month. They say that doctors from Riley's are good so at least I am a bit at ease knowing that the doctor that will monitor my baby is in good hands.
As a mom-to-be, it is sad to hear things like this. I wish that I am the one who is carrying my son's problem as I am old enough to say on what is wrong in me unlike a kid that will just cry and cry and couldn't say what's hurting him :(
My son's heart, brain etc. are all normal and we are thankful about that. The truth is he was so hyper the whole time we were at the specialist that's why the technician was having a hard time taking his ultrasound pics because he moves alot lol! The doctor said that that is a good sign :) My husband and I were happy to see our baby touching his ear and stretch his leg in my belly. Aww! that was so precious to see. It is nice to see on what is the baby doing in my belly hehe.
