That means there's probably some obstruction to urine outflow. It may resolve by itself,but needs monitoring. Plz stay in contact with your paediatrician/gynaecologist.

It seems there is an obstruction  in the PELVI-URETERIC JUNCTION (PUJ), which is basically the outlet from the Kidney. In many cases, the obstruction may get spontaneously relieved after birth, but not in all cases. It needs serial sonographic monitoring to establish that the Cortico-medullary differentiation is maintained. Don't be worried, as in many cases it resolves on it's own , without any intervention. However it's advised that you stay in touch with your Obstetrician and Pediatrician for monitoring so that if there is any complication , it can be managed effectively.
