High Level For Baby S Kidney

I just got a call from my doctor telling me the measurement of "fullness of the kidneys" was just a little high of normal and she would like me to get a level 2 ultrasound to recheck the measurements At 20 weeks it should be between 2 and 4 and baby was at 5. Of course she reassured me this is fairly common to see and no need to be alarmed but, DUH, first time mom, of course I'm alarmed! Just wondered if anyone else has had this experience and how did things work out?

Just wanted you to know that my dr. told me that my baby was measuring at 5 as well. My dr. also rea__sured me that this was no big deal, but that it is something that he would want to track throughout the pregnancy. He scheduled me for another ultrasound, not level 2, in 4 weeks. He said that they want to track at about 26 weeks and then again at 33 just to make sure that there was no problems. He also said that as long as it is only one kidney measuring large that is okay because God gave us more kidney than we need. He said that the problem is most likely to be a blockage in the drainage system in that particular kidney- if there was a problem at all. I don't know if this will help at all, but just wanted you to know that I am in the same boat. Also first time mom trying not to freak out.
