QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
At my 20 week ultrasound the doctor told us that there were multiple cysts on the baby's left kidney with the largest cyst measuring 1.5 cm. She is sending us to a perinatologist to look into this further.

This is our first child and I am terrified. Other than the cysts, she said our baby is measuring 6 days ahead of schedule. I hope that is a good thing.
