  • I haven't had this problem but a friend of mine had a mild case. She delivered 3 weeks early, but the baby was fine. Here is a link to some more info.http://www.marchofdimes.com/complications_polyhydramnios.html


    Good luck with everything!

  • My 3rd child had a single artery cord, and had excessive amniotic fluid. He was transverse/breech until the week he was born because he just bobbed around, and he was a small baby (7 lbs at birth). I would have birthed him breech if he hadn't turned, breech is not a reason for intervention :)

  • My doctor said "WOW, that's a lot of fluid!" when she broke my water, but there was no detection of this in either of the two ultrasounds I had and she never mentioned any possible complications even after saying that. And our DD now 2 1/2 months is perfect as can be :)

  • FYI- it rarely ever causes complications outside of a nuchal cord (around the neck)... which happens in approx 1/3 of ALL births- consequently, all 3 of my children had their cord wrapped around their neck at least once. No complications, all were term, healthy, unmedicated NCB.

  • my sister had to much fluid but then the next week she had not enough fluid in my oppinion I think an actual dr would be more helpful in a situation like this cause you will be needing stress tests can your midwife perform these?

  • Too much fluid can be a sign of a problem. Sounds like your doctor wants to make sure that there isn't a problem. The fluid is made from the pee from the baby and they also swallow it. Too much fluid could mean they aren't swallowing the fluid which could be due to a blockage.  It could also mean that they are peeing too much.
