Enlarged cystic kidneys
faithandhope13 posted:
I am 19 weeks, and we just had an ultrasound yesterday that showed the babies kidneys enlarge and cystic. The doctor said the kidneys are right now the size they should be towards the end of birth. I know many people have had fetuses with enlarged kidneys and ones with cysts...but has anyone had one with both and kidneys this large and if so what was the outcome?

Right now there is still amniotic fluid around the baby which indicates the kidneys are producing urine but if they fail at any time we were told the baby would not be able to make it after birth.

Looking for any positive hope or success stories with similar situations. Thank you!
