My doc said that my fluids are high this week then they were last week. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN??

Sorry i know i should have asked the doc when i was there.. BUT it totally left my mind b.c of all of the questions i was trying to make sure i asked. SO can anyone tell me what it means, and if it is good or bad?
Thanks

  • Its not good but not necessarily bad. With my son they monitored me weekly because the fluid was high, that means that there is a possibilty the baby is not swallowing the fluid properly. But its usually fine, they will probably just ask to see you more often.

  • Thank you. Hopefully it will go down. I ready the links above and i am a type 1 diabetic & my blood sugars have been a little high. so if i control it then that should work to make it go down.
