Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

While development of kidney, utters & bladder in fertal body development. The reading of full kidneys &empty bladder can be seem while the things are yetto fully matured. So one finding is not to be considered for final diagnosis. Repeated readings after some in feral are taken before such diagnosis is made. Many a times normality is found in subsequent readings. So be cool. In case the repeated readings have same findings. Certain specific tests are done before coming to final conclusion. So just be positive and follow your doctor's advise.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I lost my baby because of tumor in his head(taratoma). blood tests (torch igg, igm) doesnt show any sign of infection. HC value of his ultrasound was 450 in 24 week pregnancy. What chances are there that it can reoccur or cause problems in future. And other tests are there that can find the cause for taratoma

I haven t felt my baby move in almost 24 hours. He s always been extremely active and I find it very strange and nerve racking. I am 36 weeks, 3 days. There was no gradual decrease at all. It was as if I snapped my fingers and he stopped. Is this normal?
