Sevrina has to go in for two ultrasounds tomorrow. One is a Renal Ultrasound cause of a large cyst on her umbilical cord when I was pregnant with her and the other one is a Pilonidal Utrasound cause she has a very deep Pilonidal Dimple on her back side that dosent seem to have a bottom to it. She also has to go in next week for a Sweat Test for Cystic Fibrosis cause I am a carrier and we are not sure if her father is. He had no medical and the test was pretty expensive so my OB told us to wait till she was born cause knowing if he was or not wouldnt change anything in my pregnancy unless termination was an option for me. (which there was NO WAY it was) We arent to concerned with the Cystic Fibrosis Diagnosis cause she dosent seem to have any symptoms but we are taking all precautions. I was curious has anyone had any of these procedures done with their children or know of anyone who has and can share the info with me??? Any information is highly appreciated.

Emily had several u/s when she was little, on her heart. She had EKG's and u/s's.
She was younger, but they gave her sugar water, and it puts them in a daze and the u/s didn't phase her. No drugs, just the sugar water.
I hope everything is ok, I'll be thinking about you guys. KUP!

Both of my boys have the dimple, and Cohen had an u/s for it because his was/is pretty deep and he had hair on his lower back and that is another indication that the spinal cord didn't close properly, but his results were normal. DH has it too, so I'm guessing it's genetic.

Emily and Abby have a butt dimple too but it was never mentioned that it can be a problem. They just said to make sure to wipe them well.

Yes it is hereditary my oldest son has it and so does my grandson too but theirs dosent seem to tunnel. The doc can see a bottom to theirs..............The paperwork says to please do ultrasound of sacrum r/o pilonidal tract and r/o tethered cord

They probably didnt mention any problem cause they can see the bottom where it closes off meaning it dosent tunnel to the spine.

Can, you can see the bottom of both of theirs. I've never heard of it tunneling to the spine. Learn something everyday.

Zac had a sweat test done four very unnecessary times. Babies don't seem to mind it at all. Its non-invasive so there is no pain. They'll just stimulate a bit on her arm to produce some sweat, then wrap her up really warm to help her sweat some more. I held Zac all wrapped up for 2 of his to get the most amount of sweat as possible.
