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 more

What to do if I think by having my children has weakened my bladder as I can't even hold it it just comes from me?

Kegels, see doc: You need to start doing kegel exercises several times a day. These are done by tightening the pelvic floor muscles to stop urine flow as you urinate. Once you get the feel of which muscles you are using to do this, then you can do it during the day even when not urinating. It takes some practice, but well worth the effort. Then consult OB to make sure nothing else is wrong other than weak muscles. ...Read more

What are the treatments for an enlarged urinary bladder?

What are the treatments for an enlarged urinary bladder?

Help it empty: An enlarged bladder usually has poor muscle tone and either doesn't empty at all, or empties incompletely. This can happen acutely due to blockage of urine flow, and this is reversible by eliminating blockage. If long term or chronic, it is irreversible. This may require catheterization to drain the urine. If so, intermittent catheterization is far better than having a catheter in all the time. ...Read more

If there is a problem with the bladder, only the urologist will be able to define and treat that. ...Read more
