I panicked. It's my first time getting this far in pregnancy and I'm scared. Yesterday 7*17*13 I was diagnosed with polyhydramnios or excess amniotic fluid at 25w 1d and admitted to the hospital. My diabetes has been harder to control the last two weeks and 3 weeks ago everything was normal. I feel really horrrible because I thought I was doing well. She is extremely healthy but she may have to come early to avoid hyperglycemic complications. They have me on a fetal heart monitor and there are no problems there. I just want my daughter to be ok because if she develops anything I'll feel responsible. Did/does anyone else have polyhydramnios or know someone who did? EDIT : Thanks for the feature Update : I'm still hospitalized with 3x the amount of amniotic fluid I should. They are weighing their options but I hope she doesn't come for 100 days because its all she has left.
