Need back up testing: If the kid has a big bladder, it generally means a blockage in the urine flow out. This is usually seen along with low amnionic fluid in mom. A second opinion by a perinatologist may give you more data.If the bladder is placing pressure on the fetal lung development or abdominal wall, they may recommend early intervention/drainage etc.

Ultrasound: A full bladder does not matter. Sometimes they want the bladder full so they can use it for better visualization of pelvic structures.
