When i got my ultrasound done at 20w there were 2 times where i had the word RENtyped onto the baby.I'm now 29 w and nothing has been said to me about any problems with baby.Anyone know what REN means?

where was it typed, that might give me more of an idea what it means. It probably just a simple anagram for naming a body part, or something on the baby. I doubt anything is wrong, but ask if your that worried.

Could just be her marking the kidneys maybe? Renal? They always put notes of parts on mine too.

That's what my first impression was....that she was just noting the kidneys/renal system. It is something they look at during that U/S because I asked what those "spots" were. I'm sure it is nothing to worry about. They would absolutely have said something to you if there were any concerns.

they wrote it on the abdominal area so your probably write about it being renal system.Ijust could not find the abbreviation anywhere i think thats why i got worried.thanks for the reply.

That's got to be what it means. Nothing else makes sense. Plus all they are doing is checking to see that there are two (kidneys) and then they measure them to make sure they are not enlarged. If they were enlarged or missing you would have been told, no doubt. Now you can relax and stop worrying. Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy!!!
