Dilated kidneies in baby???

I had an ultrasound today and the found that my son's left kidney was dilated. It was at 5.6 and 6 is a problem. I have to go back in 1 month to check it again. She said that this can be related to Polyhydramniosis* which I had with my last pregnancy. So now I am freaking out. I was looking at some web sites and other woman who are in my situation said that it is related to down syndrom. I declined the test that tells you if your baby has it.

PLEASE..... tell me if this has happened to you!
