at my 20 week ultrasound the doctor is sending me to a high risk doctor for another ultrasound because they see the kidney tube on the baby "might" be pinched but its "probably" nothing to worry about... has anyone had this? and another question is it OK to go for a 5th ultrasound???? they want me to have a fifth one!! they said everything else looks normal though..... ??? what could this mean?

hi honey. Im sorry that this happened i know you were soooo excited about your ultrasound. I do know that its totally ok to have numerous ultrasounds. Some doctors do then at every single appointment. Im sure that everything is ok. Did you get to see if its a girl or boy?

venus.... i have to see a specialist for high risk. when it comes to them dont worry, it is just as easy as the other u/s. its just that they are better knowledgable with possible problems. and again since i am high risk i have u/s every month. it wont hurt you or the baby. keep us posted on the results, but i believe they are just being precautious. its better to be sure than to just dismiss it and things like that. take care

thanks ladies... hannahbaby, no we didnt get to see the s_x LOL the baby was laying like it was in a hammock. just chillin... im not really worried about the whole high risk thing, ive already been through this whole rigamarole when they decided to measure the NT too early and decided to tell me the baby might have downs and i had to go to the high risk doc they arent bad. the baby was laying in its back could have just been putting weight on the kidney tube or something. everything else looked good... saw all 4 chambers of the heart and everything alls well.

Well at least you will be able to have other ultrasounds since you are going to see a specialist and then maybe you will find out then. Im sure that everything is ok they are just being cautious. And even if there is something wrong that seems pretty minor. At least you know the big things are healthy like the heart and brain. how are you doing today!!

hey hannahbaby - im hanging in there just trying not to worry. im not too worried. i posted this question on a few other forums and this has happened to other mothers before, so there are reasons and explainations. the thing i hate the most is the WAIT. when you have to WAIT to go to the doctor. ack! hey how the heck did i reply to this last night without logging in?! i ve tried to do that before and it didnt work... (?) random :o)

ive been logged in and it doesnt display my name is RED sometimes....i dont know its a glitch i think. When is your specialist appt? Most specialists have US in their offices so you prolly wont have to wait to have a us.

idk when the appt is theyll call me tomorrow when the office resumes. i am going to talk to my doctor before i go and find out more. the doctor that looked at the ultrasound pics was not my doctor. she will call me. i hate bothering her at home but her daughters have been my dest friends since i was in kindergarten so thats a definite perk - having known my doctor for 16 years on a personal level. :o) ill keep you updated.

Well I guess what you can do is see what your doctor says, or go for the scan and wait for the results. Let us know how it goes. And don't worry about the multiple scans - I have a scan done at every appointment, and I prefer it that way, so I can keep track of my baby's progress and know that everything's ok. Personally, I would rather have a scan and be certain that it's fine, than not to have one and simply a__sume that nothing's wrong. All the best!
