So dr called me today to tell me 20 week scan results. Every was fine expect for a little dilation of one of the baby's kidneys. She said its a common finding that rarely results in anything serious and that the baby will need an ultrasound after he is born. So I am really not worried but curious anyone else ever have this with any of there babies?

My son was born at 25 weeks and he had this when he was born, he never had anything result from it and it eventually just worked out on its own and closed up... if he wasnt born so early it probably would have corrected before he was even born. Since he was already born and still had it his dr had him take an antibiotic everyday for a few months just as a precaution against a kidney infection

Do you know what the reasoning is for the antiboitic like why are they more at risk for infection?
