Complications Learned Via Sonogram

Brenda M - May 15

Hi everyone! I'm (32) weeks pregnant and have had (7) ultrasounds so far..the most recent being about two hours ago. My pregnancy has been smooth sailing and the baby and I are both doing great with two exceptions, and those exceptions are driving me nuts.. First, a month ago my doctor noticed that one of the baby's kidneys was bigger than the other, so he sent me for a Level III sonogram in Baltimore. The specialist there determined that the situation wasn't serious, but had me come back in today for an updated scan. Today we learned that both kidneys are bigger than normal, but that it's fairly common and the problem will probably go away on its own. What's more worrisome is that today we also discovered that our baby has a "lipoma" on his face (or so the doctor thinks), because one side of his cheek is larger than the other. It doesn't appear to be cranial or bony, as his face is symmetrical and nothing seems out of place except for the fatty tissue on his cheek. Now I'm nervous and upset and don't know what to think. Is the baby going to have some horrible disfigurement when he's born? And what about the kidneys--what if the problem DOESN'T correct itself? We see a pediatric plastic surgeon in two weeks but until then, I'd love to hear about any anomolies that were found on your ultrasounds, and how they ended up. Please. And thanks! Brenda
