Hi, I don't know if anyone has posted on this topic before but I had my Level 2 Ultrasound last Friday and everything looked good except they only found one kidney. They see the stump of the other one but it is not developing where it should be for 20 weeks. I am really nervous, scared, and don't know what to do. I have read that this can be more common then I know but unless the doctor tells you, you have a healthy baby you can't help but worry constantly. Has anyone else gone through this or know of anyone that had a baby with only one kidney? They want to see me again in four weeks, don't know how I am going to function until those four weeks get here.
I dont have any experience with this problem exactly but i know how it feels to go for an appointment and hear that the baby is not perfect. My advice is to call the doctor that will be the baby's pediatrition and talk to them about it. That is what i did and they were able to answer so many of my questions and ease some fears. I will keep you in my prayers.
Thank you so much for your response. Being a first time mom it's all I have been thinking about. I do have an appointment on Wednesday with my regular doctor. I was just hoping to find someone out there that has experienced this issue. Four weeks feels like forever to get another ultrasound and hopefully better answers. Thanks again!
You can also call your local hospital and see if they have support groups for parents of children with organ issues. A few days before my first was born we met with a social worker from the hospital and she helped me meet some other moms who had had similiar experiences. Feel free to ask me stuff or bump ideas by me. I know these next 4 weeks are going to feel like forever.
Hi! I am sorry as a first time mom that you are going through something scary! I don't personally know of any of the other mommas on here who have experienced this same thing, but I'm sure there probably is someone. Hopefully somebody will read this who has, and will respond with some helpful information for you. My last one did have kidney/ureter defects found during the same ultrasound, and we watched it all through the pregnancy, and after birth. So I too understand the worry of things not going as they should. Have faith, and keep your chin up, we're here if you need anything. Bcogoli's ideas about finding possible support groups was a great idea too.
