Have you ever had it? What were your levels? Did you see a specialist? What did they do about it? Did you carry to term? Was baby ok?

I have no idea what that is so I'm thinking I've never had it.

So here is a bump

Never heard of it... I had oligohydroamniosis (low fluid) when I was pregnant with my DD

I had low fluid with my 1st but never knew that was what it was called.

Its the opposite of oligo. Poly is too much fluid.

Have they explained to you what might be causing it or how it may affect your baby?

I did with my first, but it wasn't bad enough to warrant a specialist or anything. My kid was a week late and perfectly healthy. =)

I had it with DS. I don't remember the units they used, but I had 4 times the amount I was supposed to have. He was literally swimming around in there, even when he was 8lbs. I did have to go to the high risk doctor 3 times. And they put me on bed rest at 30 weeks because between the weight of DS and the weight of the fluid, it was causing early labor. I was HUGE! Everyone swore I was having twins. Then when they let me off bed rest at 38 weeks because it was safe for him to be born then, I actually went 3 days overdue. Ugh.

From what they told me then, there isn't really much they can do about it, other than try to prevent preterm labor.

Yes. There are a few causes (unknown, diabetes, congenital defects) and a lot of risks (uterine rupture, early labor, iugr, pprom and a cord that sweeps out and gets trapped taking babies oxygen)

I had too much fluid, all was well but SUPER uncomfortable and I flooded the bed when my water was broken. Not COOL! Other then that nothing major.
