Renal Pelvis Dilation
I had previously gone in for a level II sonogram at 18 weeks to check for any growth abnormalities (had a previous pregnancy with severe condition of spina bifida which had to be terminated). The baby looked fine and measured well except for a 5mm growth on its kidneys. the doctor told me it was called renal pelvis dilation. He didn't seem worried but told me to come back in 4 weeks for another U/s. I just got back from my 22 week u/s which showed the dilation was increased slightly and that is was soft marker for downs. The doctor still didn't seem that worried but just wanted me to know the risk. I had a nuclay translucency test done at week 12 which came back excellent results (meaning low for downs - 1 in 9000). But of course I am still worried. The baby has no other markers - the femur and humerus is growing proportionately. But I am worried. They did offer me an amnio but I am not sure I want to risk that. Please help!!! It is a girl :)
