Does minor hydronephrosis signify serious kidney problem in a developing baby?

Q: I am a 29 years old female, into my 32nd week of pregnancy. My ultrasound report states that both fetal kidneys are normal in size and echotexture but both kidneys show moderate hydronephrosis with calyceal separation of 5-6 mm and the pelvis is dilated, measuring 9-10 mm. What does this mean? Is there any serious problem with the kidneys of my baby? Which medicine can I take to prevent this problem, and what is the cause of this problem?

A:Minor hydronephrosis, during development stage is normal, just follow-up with repeat ultrasound to make sure it is not increasing. Also, get another level 11 scan to make sure there are no other abnormalities in the baby. Get it done from a good reputed scanner.
