Findings: If you're having a boy this could be an early sign of posterior urethral valves, which is easily corrected after delivery and shouldn't be an issue. Your fluid level is probably just fine. My only concern is that you haven't been tested for gestational diabetes yet.

No to worry now: this is a snapshot in time. Those numbers do not sound too bad. I would suggest getting another ultrasound in about two weeks and see if this changes. Then you will know where you stand. Best wishes
