Well, I will be going back for an ultrasound (at $100 a pop) every month until delivery. Blake has a kidney issue in which he holds his pee and it backs up into his kidneys. Apparently, this is a major boy issue (even later in life! ha) and quite common. But, it can cause for amniotic fluid to decrease as he isn't releasing his urine back into the fluid at a normal pace. So, they want to keep an eye on it and make sure that doesn't happen. Currently, my fluid levels are fine and he is doing great otherwise. Of course, they have to tell you this is a soft marker for Downs Syndrome. But, since my blood test came back negative (.04% chance) they are not concerned with it. It doesn't mean that the kidney issue can cause Downs, just that some Downs children have the kidney issue.

Just thought I would update you all and if anyone has extra information on this I would appreciate it!
