So the other day my hubby and I went in to find out baby's sex and found out we were having a girl. Yay! HOWEVER we also found out there was too much amniotic fluid surrounding baby and on top of that ´╗┐the baby is frank breech (I'm 22 weeks pregnant). I knew I was carrying bigger than normal at this stage in pregnancy being that this is my third pregnancy. This was due to a lot of fluid and not what I thought of me just being bloated or greedy. Has anyone felt with this or know someone who.has??? I have another apt. In two weeks, and it seems like forever

I always have excessive fluid. And there's still plenty of time for the baby to flip. For now try to relax. All that happened with me excessive fluid was a shocked look on the nurses faces when mine spilled all over the floor after they broke my water.

I had this...its called Polyhydraminos. Most likely it'll go away on its own but if it doesn't its not life threatening and it doesn't harm the baby. Its just REALLY uncomfortable for you
I had this starting at 20wks until I had my son at 39wks 2days...when I measured 45wks (yiiikes)

Basically all they did was "keep an eye on it" my whole pregnancy. I had NST (non stress test) twice a week and an ultrasound once a week to make sure baby was okay and to see what my levels were.
The extra fluid gave my son plenty of space to move around which got kind of painful near the end because he was so big and still able to fullly roll and flip....but thats good for you because that means you have plenty of room for your little girl to flip as well.

I dont know much about the fluid but there is still plenty of time and space for baby to be doing somersaults in there so i wouldnt worry about position yet

There is a lot of time for baby to flip, so try not to let that worry you just yet. As far as the amniotic fluid goes, that is also sometimes not a big concern. Just wait until your next scan and see what they say then. :)
