i had a growth scan at 34 weeks and was told i had increased amniotic fluid, but as the AFI was only 21 and my deepest pool 7 i didn't have it, as your AFI has to be above 23 and the deepest pool above 8. However just had a growth scan this morning and my AFI is now 26 and my deepest pool is 8. Thats a jump of 5cm for my AFI.
i'm not seeing my doctor at the hospital till next thurs, and was just going to leave it but since i've had black spots in my eyes for weeks with no discovered cause and high blood pressure recently my mum badgered me to ring the midwife..
so i did, and she said 'oh yes thats a very big jump in amniotic fluid' and asked when i was seeing the doctor next, i said not till next thurs and she said, oh because your consultant only works one day a week you wont be able to see anyone till then. but try not to worry, if your waters go just come straight in.
I feel like there's no point having a midwife! when i've looked online it says it can cause early labour and if your waters go you have to get on all fours and ring an ambulance asap as you can give birth to the placenta first. No one seems that bothered though so maybe i am worrying more than i should.
Has anyone else got or had this before? if so what have you been told? it's going to stress me out till next thurs!
well done for reading if you got this far... i've probably rambled on! xx
Yes i have polyhydramnios. I dont really understand the AFI measurments but on my midwife notes it says my deepest pool is 145cm i think! And i am measuring 43weeks because there is so much fluid there. The reason i have this though is cus baby has a condition called Duodenal Atresia which is where her small intestine hasnt developed properly/its blocked or cut off. Did they give you a scan? I was told baby will most likely come before 40 weeks, they said she will probably come around now and when my waters break i have to go straight to the hospital, cus theres more chance of the cord coming out first.

I have Polyhydramnios. Unfortunately, I don't have any details to share with you. I had a scan last Monday, but I don't see my doctor until this Tuesday so I don't know how much fluid I have in there or what. I'm 29 weeks. I made the mistake in googling and now I'm all worried. Anyway, I hope everything goes well for you. Sorry I couldn't be much more help.
I had this with my first pregnancy with a AFI of 40+ I had 3 x the amount you should have & was admitted to hospital at 28 weeks because of it & my son was breech
I was not allowed off the ward without someone, was told i would not make it to 30 weeks without my waters going.. I had my son by c-section at 39+3 they were so wrong every week they told me i wouldnt make it past another week
I have excess water this time again at a AFI of 29, im coming on 40 weeks EDD monday & again cant see the extra water making me go into labour early
Just wanted to leave a hug I was the opposite to you, I had a PROM at 14 weeks which resulted in olighydraminos, at 15+1 my deepest pool was only 3cm normal is 10cm and above xx my waters have fixed themselves now and at my 20+4 scan my fluid had increased to 11cm
