Sorry to hear about the complications, though it isn't all that uncommon for this to happen. It's good that they are monitoring it well. If it continues to be considered mild, there isn't anything to do and many times it will correct itself. Otherwise if it is more severe, after the baby is born they will give the baby antibiotics to help and more imaging studies to see if surgery is necessary. Though don't stress too much about this. The problem can correct itself on its own. Good luck.
