Distended Bladder In Fetus
Full bladder: It means that the bladder is full. When the fetus empties the bladder, that fluid is the called amniotic fluid. In rare cases the fetus cannot empty the bladder. Then the bladder becomes over distended which can damage the bladder. The pressure in the bladder can also lead to fetal kidney damage. ...Read more
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
31 weeks ultrasound, fetus showed a clearly distended bladder, no dilation in kidneys n amniotic pool was good. Ultrasound repeated next day showed same?
Not necessarily : At this time during fetal development, the urine output is very large. This large volume may give the appearance of a distended bladder. It is reassuring that the kidneys are not dilated and that the amniotic fluid is normal. It would be desirable to know the gender of the baby prior to recommending additional imaging which would have to start with an ultrasound study shortly after birth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
35 wk usg femalefoetus shows over distended bladder with kidneys normal amniotic fluid normal ..is there any problem ,prior tiffa normal .
Baby full bladder: Most likely if the kidneys look normal and the amniotic fluid is normal, all is well. Usually we'd repeat the ultrasound again later to see if the baby emptied in the meantime or not. If there was a blockage of the urine outflow from the bladder, the amniotic fluid level would not be normal, it would be very low. ...Read more
I had a ultrasound of my bladder and kidneys and the report said "Unremarkable Scan" but it said "under-distended bladder" so would they see that ok?
It depends: How under distended the bladder was and what your clinician was looking for. If your doc was looking for things like bladder outlet obstruction, an undistended bladder pretty much rules that out. If they are looking for things like bladder wall thickening, a collapsed bladder might make that impossible to see. But if the bladder is at least partially distended, usually the scan is ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does lower ab pain, and very limited urination after drinking water all day mean that I am having urinary retentention and/or bladder distension?
Here are some...: Urinating more often with less & less voided volume from each voiding than used to be over the past few weeks or months should lead professional mind to think about possible developing pending urinary retention. To sort things out correctly has not to be that hard by following instructions in http://formefirst.com/eNewsletter06.html; thereby you gain insight on how to work closely with doc so to.. ...Read more
Not likely: If you didn't know you had a bladder infection then you didn't have a bladder infection. In other words you had bacteria in the urine without symptoms. This condition poses a potential risk in pregnancy if it develops into a severe (febrile) infection (which by definition is bacteria in the urine causing symptoms). Pregnant women should have bacteriuria treated with or without symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
LUTO?: Lower urinary tract obstruction (luto) can present with low amniotic fluid (oligohydramnios), large fetal bladder and hydronephrosis. If bilateral, this is a bad diagnosis with poor prognosis for survival and even poorer for intact survivial and few treatment options with any chance of long-term success. ...Read more

Male fetus ultrasound (35w 4d) which showed an enlarged fetal bladder. Normal amniotic fluid and kidneys. Is this typical in third trimester?
Specific case: This is a very specific case that requires a doctor to evaluate the exact findings of the sonogram to determine if it is normal or not. You will need to seek clarification from your doctor regarding the term “enlarged bladder” to determine if further testing, follow up sonograms or a referral to a perinatologist is indicated. ...Read more
18 week fetal US indicated enlarged bladder. Kidneys measured normal. Amniotic fluid normal. Any advice?
Full bladder US?: If the ultrasound was done with a full bladder as is usually done, then the pregnancy will distort and displace the bladder at 18 weeks, so it is difficult to say that the "bladder was enlarged". Since the amniotic fluid content is OK. as well as the fetus then "no worries" at this juncture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
