  • I was low on amniotic fluid because my placenta aged too quickly (i was induced because of it) I'm not sure what it means when fluid is too high though.

  • I was with my third child. My doctor told me just to tell me, but said she wasn't too concerned. It can be a sign of getational diabetes, but it wasn't for me. My daughter had room for swimming!! :-) She never seemed to stay head down and even when I was in labor was moving around a lot!! When they broke my water I had a ton of it!! It didn't affect my health or the baby's at all. I would assume it will be the same for you if you are only at the high end of normal!

  • Yes, still normal. Lets see what happens. I'm scheduled for a sonogram again next week. Thanks for the advise.
