Has anyone else seen or heard of this? My doctor just called me to tell me and she wouldn't really explain it over the phone. I am completely worried right now. All I know is they are measuring 4 & 5.

My son had it. His leg was blocking him from being able to pee. It corrected itself.

My last son had it an we followed up with an US at 32 weeks a they were better. The baby in pregnant with now has the same thing, and I fact I have an US today to check on them. I'm not too worried and just hoping they go back to normal like my last son. It's really common. Especially in boys.

My son has/had it. They found it during my ultrasound at 22 weeks. Had another one at 34 to confirm, went for another one at a bigger hospital at 36 weeks. It hadn't gotten any bigger. They had me deliver at the bigger hospital "just in case". They gave him an ultrasound after he was born. They didn't actually tell us the results but we hated the hospital and were happy to leave. He is 9 weeks 2 days, and pees like a race horse! He goes for a follow up ultrasound in the city we had him on June 25th. Our Dr. isn't concerned at all and we aren't either. If it wasn't for ultrasounds we'd have never there was an issue.

I was also told that my son had this during every ultrasound. Had to go to a high risk specialist and discuss surgery options for him for after he was born. I went for one last ultrasound the week before he was born and it was gone. Most cases correct themselves.
