    Hello dear ,
    Fetal renal pyelectasis ( kidney swelling) is a cause for worry only if it is more than 7mm in anterior -posterior plane at more than 28 weeks of pregnancy. So , in your case , if it is 3 mm , then it should be normal . If you are still worried , then a post delivery baby ultrasound of kidneys will crosscheck it and reassure you . Hope that answers your query .
    Thank you

    Thank you kindly for the clarification!

    I’ll bear that in mind and may opt for a post-delivery ultrasound if there are any further concerns. Appreciate your assistance!
