Ultrasound results/baby check up

I had my baby check up for the ultrasound results and they came back normal except for some fluid around the baby's kidneys. The midwife told me this is pretty normal and should devolve on it's own but they want to do a repeat ultrasound in 8 weeks. If it's still there then when he is born they will do another ultrasound on him and go from there. Besides that he is smack dab in the middle of the growth chart. I have only gained 5lbs, but mind you I have a long torso and I was very sick the first 16 weeks. I only gained 25lbs the other two times and had babies weighing big and small so we will see what this guy has in store.

My husband is slated to start his new job as soon as the marine corps finishes his med board so he will be on his way over seas and ill get to move a whole house ,2 motorcycles, 2 kids, dog and sell his car all while pregnant lol.

Oh my goodness! It sure sounds like you have plenty on your plate. I hope everything turns out well with your second ultrasound. I can't even imagine having to do all that alone. My hat is absolutely off to you.

Re: Ultrasound results/baby check up

Moving while pregnant is so stressful.
We had to move and buy a new van last baby, whew!
What could fluid around the kidneys mean? We've never dealt with that here.

Re: Ultrasound results/baby check up

Hope the fluid around the kidneys clears up by the next ultrasound! We're moving too, the moving truck arrived at our new place and should be unloading today, with the help of the NGO DH will is working for. We are still in our old place, basically camped out until I leave to visit family for a few weeks, so I pretty much miss the entire move. Moving and packing alone while pregnant doesnt sound like fun! Sounds stressful. DH is trying to make our move as least stressful as possible for me, which is why it is happening while I am visiting my family.

They said the fluid is normal because when the kidney is formed it is formed from liquid, so basically not all of it has dissolved yet. It happens in the brain too. She didn't seem too concerned and said it was very minimal
