We went for our 30 week today and she seems to be growing fine but my OB mentioned a 6mm area of fluid on her brain. He said he doesn't think at this point she has hydrocephalus but he brought it up. The 6mm is on the high end of the normal range? Another u/s in 2 weeks to check the area. I've cried all the rest of the afternoon and have been praying. He said he's not worried that it will probably resolve but I'm a mess. Not sure who all has ever dealt with this? It's not a diagnosis but a concern/abnormality. I haven't found much online about 6mm areas that went away with no problem, most I've read is much larger sizes. Sorry to whine I just don't have a lot of people to talk to and the next 2 weeks are going to be so long

I'm sure it's hard not to worry but try not to. When I interned for US this was the most common abnormality I saw and all of them went away.

I'm so sorry you are having to worry... that's not fun, and you'er right, it makes for a long two weeks. I hope it resolves itself. I will say some extra prayers for you and little baby.

With my first my DD had a slightly enlarged renal pelvis.. and the doctor also worried us about it.. it was the same on another ultrasound and we panicked as we googled it..
It resolved itself and had to do another ultrasound after she was born and they told us it was fine The OB told us later many times those cases do resolve on their own.

At my last perinatal appt my Dr told me that my daughter has ventricles that have two different levels of fluid. They said that while she is within normal range 6 and 9, they would watch it because they are perinatal specialists and that's what they do. At this point I'm not upset because she is still within normal range and by your number, your baby is too.

Here is a link to explain the normal levels and the difference between a congenital problem and hydrocephalus. For now, just let them keep an eye on baby and most likely it will resolve itself.

When I was pregnant with my youngest, they found a fluid filled cyst in his brain. I can't remember offhand what is is called, but it ended up resolving on it's own. Hoping that everything resolves for you as well, and glad they are keeping an eye on it.

Thank you all so very much for your kind words, encouragement and support. I'm trying to keep myself occupied as I spend a lot of time home alone especially at nights and I tend to let my mind wonder. It helps so much being on here and seeing post from all of you even those that are not going through the same thing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart <3

I have no experience with that but wanted to send hugs your way. I'm sure it will resolve. My youngest was born with a hydrocyle in his testical. It was huge. They thought he had twisted veins in there and were prepping him for surgery when they figured out what it was. He wasn't even 24 hours old. I know this isn't completely the same thing and yours is a lot more scary. But the good thing with Hydro anything is most the time it will resolve because the body absorbs it back. It did with my son.

I've heard a lot of these resolve on there own. Hopefully that happens. My SIL was born with hydrocephalus. I know she's experienced challenges and I won't go into detail to alarm you but she's thriving in college right now. Lives in a dorm on her own and will probably finish her degree before me lol.

I hope it resolves itself! Things like this usually do fortunately! I'm sorry you are stressed and scared for your baby!

Both of my twins have fluid pockets around the kidneys. Its just borderline within normal. We've been keeping an eye on it and watching it go down. Most things like this resolve themselves, but the monitoring is good! There is way more that they can do if caught early.
