AmySue - I'm just seeing my family practice doc (Sarah Swofford at Green Meadows) for the pregnancy. I believe it is hospital policy that all VBACs have an OB consult, since my family practice doc can't do c-sections, obviously -- I guess they want to make sure we get the whole picture? Who knows. I'll report back when it actually happens. The MFM doc who recommended follow-up for the caliectasis was Randall Floyd -- seemed nice, professional, older gentleman. The name of the person we were supposed to meet with escapes me.
According to Pubmed, about 2% of ultrasounds show fluid in the kidneys (our bean just had it in one), and about 75% of the cases are with males. About 60% resolve on their own prenatally, and another big chunk resolves shortly after birth, though if still present at birth, it'll mean tests (involving catheters and newborn babies and it did not sound pleasant at all) and then a fairly small percent do need surgery, which they do at 6 months. Also, apparently, it can be a soft marker for Down's, but given my age, that they baby is a boy, and that there were no other markers, that's very unlikely. So A) I hope nothing is wrong, and I don't really think anything is and B) I sincerely hope this doesn't lead to a lot of stress and tests especially if nothing is wrong.
Judybean - I asked DH to clean out my car for Mothers' Day. That, and I want to sleep in. My wants are simple and desires few, ya'll.
