My neice is pregnant, in the second trimester, and just reported the doctor saw dialated kidneys during a routine sonogram. Does anyone know what that means?

I had a dialated kidney with my son four years ago. It just means it is bigger than normal. I also had some aching in my back on that side. It usually is nothing to worry about, but I remember being worried because he said it could be a bigger problem. If I remember correctly, those issues are either kidney stones which is no biggie, or related to other diseases that it was very unlikely that I had. Just don't work yourself up too much. It turned out that mine was from laying on my back (sheesh) and the baby was cutting off my ureter from moving urine from my kidneys to my bladder and was backing it up and causing it to swell. I THOUGHT I had to go less at night... lol I wouldn't worry, it could be a big issue, but let doc worry about that. It's very common.
