I went for my 21 week Ultrasound last week and apparently the baby's left kidney is dilated.
I'm not the worrying type, and put it mostly down to the doctor being over-precautious. But after the ultrasound she sat me down, told me she'd schedule a 'second level' scan for ASAP, said it'd have to be quick because if I want an amniocentisis and find out the baby's sick and want to abort there's only a little window of 2 weeks... She asked me what I'd do if I found out I have a baby with an illness, and kept looking at me with pity and apology.
Well, personally I'd never get an amniocentisis, as I'd never abort a baby with an illness.
This post is just a vent really, plus I'm a bit confused.
Most of what I've found online are people's doctors saying it's nothing to worry about, it's common in boys (mine's a boy) and most the time it fixes itself before birth. Why was my doctor freaking me out so much?
I'm also annoyed because now DH and I are having all these intense discussions about amniocentisis, disabled children, what we'd do etc.. and I feel like we're not even close to being at that point.
I have the second scan on Tuesday..
