So I had my growth scan this afternoon, and baby is 5lbs10oz, and measuring 3 weeks ahead. I have to do the 3 hour glucose test tomorrow and go back in another 2 weeks to see my dr and get another growth scan. Also, the dr didn't say anything, but I noticed on the report I had increased fluid. It was 25.2cm. However on the biophysical profile, it says normal, and baby scored 8/8. The only thing dr said was that she's big, which is often caused by gd, so to go do another glucose test. I'm kinda panicking. If the dr didn't specifically mention any concerns about my fluid (even though it's mentioned on the report that it's increased and to check again next scan), and if I only have to go in again in 2 weeks, do you think I'm overreacting by going into panic mode?

Amanda- Weights can be really off at this point. Did you pass the first glucose test?

Yes I did, but they want me to redo it as baby girl's in the 95th %.

With dd I had increased fluids too, "borderline" too much. My water did break early and I think that was the cause. I delivered at 36 weeks 6 days and she was 7lbs 9oz which is big for that gestation.
How many weeks are you?
High fluid is also a sign of diabetes I believe although I didn't have it with that pregnancy. I wouldn't worry too much and definitely wouldn't panic,

Lanet, yes, 25.2 was afi. I know high fluid is also a diabetes sign, so I'm fully expecting to fail the test today. When you google high fluid, you find out all sorts of scary things, which I probably SHOULDN't have done. Ugh, DH calmed me down a bit yesterday saying that I shouldn't worry about fluid if the dr didn't think it was important enough to mention.
Lanet, at 36w6d was everything good with dd? I'm not worried about her coming early, as long as she'll be good when she's out.

Mostly if they come after 34 weeks there's such a low chance of disability that they'll be fine.

Honestly, most babies 30 weeks on do great in my work experience. They just have to feed and grow bigger. At 36 weeks there's always a chance of a short NICU stay. Hope the glucose test goes well and your next scan is great!

Not much to add but my colleague had her baby at 36 weeks recently and baby didn't even have to go to NICU. She weighed 5lbs 5 and was absoloutely fine. She was in hospital for about 5 days though on a normal ward with mum for monitoring.

I was only 5lbs 2 when I was born at 38 weeks and I never went to special care or anything. I was just a scrawny looking thing, my early baby photos are a delight

Good luck with the test and hope all is OK!

Dd was totally fine and came home with me. I also googled and scared myself about high fluid, but there were no problems. I think if your Dr saw a problem he would mention it and it seems it might just be sugar related and possibly nothing to worry about at all
My sister thinks I have high fluid now. She's a labor and delivery nurse and says she can always spot it bc they belly is perfectly round like a beach ball. I don't know if that's accurate of course and I doubt I'll have another scan unless I start measuring bigger.
