Baby only has one kidney developed

Hi all

We had our twenty week scan yesterday and found out our little girl is healthy in every way ie heartbeat, spine, skeletal structure, brain development. But she only has one kidney. Her bladder is working beautifully and she is passing waste properly....... Anyone else had the same experience? I'm anxious to know what this means for her birth xxxx

I'm glad to hear she's doing wonderfully! When I was born, I had a growth on my left kidney. My mother gave the go-ahead to remove the kidney when I was born instead of waiting til I was around 5 and would remember it. Now, I know this isn't the same thing really, but in the womb, that kidney didn't work properly and I still came out just fine. I know my story isn't the same as what's going on with your little one in there, but I hope it helped to ease your mind at least?

I saw this and am jumping in. My DH was born with only one kidney. Then there were not the ultrasounds we have now so they didn't know it at the time. They found his when as a child he was having stomach pain and they did an ultrasound. The pains ended up having nothing to do with the kidney but it was good information to have. He lives a perfectly normal healthy life with one kidney and I'm sure your baby will too. Have you seen your doctor since the ultrasound? What dies he say about the one kidney?

Thank you both!!

I have to go for a medical scan Tuesday to find out more so fingers crossed all will be fine she's a little wriggler with a fantastic heartbeat so I think she will be just fine! X
