Ascites: If what you mean is that there is a dena or swelling in the babies abdomen that could be a sign of ascites. This can be the result of a variety of conditions. Given how many different conditions could be causing this it's best to have a visit with your obstetrician or perinatologist to discuss the possible causes.
