Borderline high levels of amniotic fluid


27+5 today, having my GD test and regular check up. Midwife measured fundal height but was concerned so sent me for a growth scan.

His head is measuring a week ahead, he's 4 days ahead overall (fine) but my amniotic levels are on the high end. I think she said 25 was the highest level acceptable and I'm 24.6 or there about.

I've been placed on appointments every 2 weeks for monitoring. She'll have me do a growth scan at 32 weeks. We already get little quick u/s at every appt in the office, but it's not in depth.

Anyone else have experience with this?

I had to keep going back for scans every 2 weeks and fluid levels went back to normal on their own by 38 weeks

That's a relief to hear. Didn't need bed rest or anything like that?

I had a growth scan done in my last pregnancy around 30 weeks because I was consistently measuring 4 weeks ahead and was diagnosed with polyhydramnios (fluid levels were 29) so I had to go for bi-weekly scans. Thankfully my levels topped at 30 but never decreased either. I wasn't put on bed rest, just told to take it easy. Well with three other kids to look after, taking it easy wasn't really and option for me and I ended up going into premature labor at 35 weeks. Between the fluid and the baby, my cervix just gave out from the weight. Thankfully though baby was fine and they told me that it just sometimes happens. I'm pregnant again and just had my 30 week scan. My levels were only 20 this time so no polyhydramnios. Keep in mind that just because you had it in one pregnancy doesn't necessarily mean you'll have it again, should you decide to have another. Good luck, hun!

My biggest concern is my job. I only work part time (20 hours) but it's on my feet (fast food) and I'm worried it may exaggerate problems. I've already requested to be reduced to 15 weeks today, as I want to ensure this gets better.

I had this with my son my levels were very high, I had scans every two weeks and had some blood work done but in the end they couldn’t find anything that was causing it I gave birth to a healthy little no problems. I was not put on bed rest was just told to take it easy hope all works out well for you sure it will x
