Re: Ultrasound - Couldn't fully see heart or kidneys :(
Did the doctor say anything about the baby's amniotic fluid level? If the fluid level was normal, there is probably no problem with the kidneys. If I understand things correctly, the amniotic fluid is made mostly of the baby's urine. They swallow it, pass it as urine, and then restart the cycle. If there is adequate fluid, I think that means that the kidneys are working correctly. Otherwise, the baby would swallow, but then the kidneys would not be able to make urine, so the fluid would be low.
Have a good cry if you need to let your fear all out, but it is so much better for your baby if you can try to stay calm. I hope everything works out well. Good luck!
