Fluid In Baby S Kidneys

Worried mom - April 21

My AFP was abnormal and the 18 week ultrasound showed fliud in the baby's kidneys. My dr is recommending amnio. to rule out Downs syndrome. Is anyone else going through this. I'm 34 and am afraid of the risks of amnio.

I'm sorry. Hope everythign works out o.k. I'm not going through it, but I think there are other risk factors as well. I always thought that the heads grew at a faster rate than everything else. If everything else is normal I would be skeptical. But I have no idea what fluid in the kidneys means. You ought to look it up on the internet and see what kind of info you find. GL.

I opted out of the AFP testing. If there was something wrong, I wouldn't terminate the pregnancy, so I saw no need. I have heard that the risks of amnio are slim, but they are still there to be weighed. Your age isn't really considered in a higher risk category, I dont think, but I could be wrong. Go with your gut and whatever it takes to put your mind at ease.
