Has anyone else suffered from the above. I'm 33 weeks this friday and my midwife is measuring me up at 46 weeks. I have also been for a growth scan and I have too much amoniotic fluid around the baby, and I am back in tomorrow for a day of monitoring.
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced or heard anything about it
This is the website that explains it all....easier for you to read it, then for me to ramble on Lol
I had the exactly the same thing although wasnt measuring THAT far ahead. Had a scan at 20 and 32weeks and there was far to much fluid, they booked me for a scan at 36weeks (which i had today) and said if fluid is still there and depending on the growth of baby they will want to get him out early. Although iv just been for my scan and my fluid is now back down and only a little over what they call normal so they are leaving it for now and im being rescanned at 38weeks. Not sure how or why the fluid has gone down.. But you never know this could happen with you. If not they might just want to get baby out early but probably wont discuss that with you this early.. They will just keep an eye on it with regular scans for now i think.
Im 28 weeks pregnant and have been told i have too much fluid around the baby, with no obvious cause for it, im being scanned every two weeks at the moment, but have told me i may need to have fluid drained, which i have reading about and am quiet concerned with as it can cause labour, i feel very heavy and get terrible aching pains in my belly if i stand for too long, they havent told me how many weeks i measure just that my fluid counts up to 36.4 which has increased alot since my last scan which was at 29.5
My midwife has told me too I am measuring large for dates. I look about full term already and am fed up of people asking if I am carrying twins
I had a glucose tolerence test to check for diabetes as this can be oone cause, and am currently waiting the results. Think I will be having a growth scan in a few weeks too..
Try not to worry, on my second child pregnancy I had exactly the same, I worried for no reason and he was born a very healthy 9lb 8oz. When they broke my waters it was like a river!! Looking back, I was huge on my first pregnancy too so I bet I had the same then - 11 years ago though, they werent so good at checking.
