Hi, It turned out he has a duplicate collecting system on his right kidney. He's almost 3 and hes had no complications from it. For the rest of my pregnancy they had me come in for monthly u/s to check on it and he has yearly checks on his kidney.

I hope everythings ok with your lil one.

I just went for an ultrasound at 25 weeks and this is the first of 4 ultrasounds that they got a good look at the baby since it is breached. They found a spot on one of it's kidneys and this alarmed the ultrasound tech which has been doing ultrasounds for over 10years she said that she was emailing the ultrasound to my OB and we would follow up in 3 weeks. She stated that if it has gotten bigger and not smaller then I would be sent to a specialist to have a look at it. I am worried to death about the baby so I was wondering what your outcome was?!?!

I have heard from my OB that some cysts in utero will dissolve. Not sure about one on the kidney. But I am sure you will keep a close eye on it. Ask for extra ultrasounds!! And ones with better imaging. I was high risk with both pregos and would squeeze out as many I could to have peace of mind...or atleast so I knew what was going on! Some docs are rushing their patients and can overlook important things. Staying informed with the docs will help ease your fears. I hope everything works out.

I had a similar scare when I was pregnant with my youngest. It turned out that everything was fine after a second ultra sound a few months later. I don't know really anything about a kidney cyst however, I do hope everything turns out ok for your baby, and mabey you should ask for a second ultrasound in a couple weeks or so. Good luck!!
