Probably normal: The heart lies with in the pericaridal sac. This is bag formed by a fairly strong membranous tissue. There is always a small amount of fluid in the pericardium probably for lubrication. It's called pericarial fluid. This is normal. Sometimes the fluid level can increase this is called a pericaridal effusion. This can be caused by infection, heart failure, kidney disease, and trauma. ...Read more
Decreased perfusion: Oligo can be either loss of fluid or decreased production. A stressed infant will shunt oxygenated blood to more vital organs, less renal perfusion, therefore less urine produced. Anything that decreases placental perfusion can cause it (abruption or placental separation, poor implantation, vascular problems, clots, uterine abnls, etc). There are too many causes to list here, ask your ob. ...Read more

Not Drops: When collecting fluid during a lumbar puncture, we don't exactly count drops of fluid. Rather, we count CCs (cubic centimenters). Typically there are 4 tubes. We collect only 1-2 cc in the first and 2-6 in the rest. The amount collected depends on the purpose of the lumbar puncture. Decreasing fluid pressure, having enough fluid for many lab tests are 2 reasons to draw off larger amounts. ...Read more
Based on setting: During pregnancy, it is not unusual to see "debris" in the amniotic fluid during ultrasound. This is likely related to vernix - a cheesy substane produced by the baby. On the other hand, bloody amniotic fluid that is actually seen can be normal, or it can be a sign of a complication called placental abruption. In either case, this should be clarified by the ob/gyn involved. ...Read more
Roughly 800 cc: The amount of amniotic fluid is greatest at about 34 weeks (gestation) into the pregnancy, when it averages 800 mL. About 600 mL of amniotic fluid surrounds the baby at full term (40 weeks gestation). Having said that, amniotic fluid is exchanged between mother and her fetus several times a day. ...Read more
Diabetes?: Most of the time we don't know what causes polyhydramnios. It is associated with maternal diabetes and can result from trouble with the fetal kidneys or swallowing ability. In and of itself, it isn't harmful, though it can result in cord prolapse if the water breaks through an open cervix. Ask your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A hole: The bag of water is held together by amniotic membranes that have less integrity than an overfilled water balloon.
