    Default Horseshoe Kidney

    I just had my morph scan this morning ( currently 19 wks + 3 ). Everything was fine except one thing, dr mentioned that bub has horseshoe kidney. meaning Kidneys joined together and therefore has U shape. He said it wouldn't pose any risk to the pregnancy or birth. usually people has horseshoe kidney until adulthood and not knowing they have it unless they have kidney stone or UTI.

    He doesn't seem to worry because other organs are normal. But he did offer Amnio test if I'm worried about it.

    I was wondering if anyone had the same diagnosis during morph scan?
    or given birth to baby with horseshoe kidney. thank you.
    BTW we found out that we are having a GIRL ...!!! yay

    Im only just pregnant with mt first, but have seen lots of hprseshpe kidneys thru work. Most ppl are absolutely fine - theyll prolly just want to check her out a bit to make sure - but that's usually just a precaution
