I'm 28 weeks and was told I have a generous amount of amniotic fluid. Is this common? I read up on it and it was pretty concerning. Help please

You need an amount: Most with some elevated fluid do not have an issue; if elevated real high you will probobly get referred to a specialist but there is a number called an amniotic fluid index that will guide the severity. Polyhydramnios (light fluid) is considered over about 20 but need more specifics from your dr. Saying generous is non specific and leads you googling, worried and focused on downside.

Depends: Sometimes fluid level is high for no reason, sometimes it's related to diabetes, infection, birth defect, etc. I'm not sure what to make out of "fluid around brain" without looking at the images. Your doctor should be able to elaborate on this. ...Read more

Talk to your OB: This is a question that may not have an answer at this point, but the best person to talk to would be your OB who ordered the ultrasound. They would have more information and can interpret the test based on the rest of your history. Best wishes... ...Read more

What causes amniotic fluid to leak at 27 week?

What causes amniotic fluid to leak at 27 week?

A hole: The bag of water is held together by amniotic membranes that have less integrity than an overfilled water balloon. Sometimes, they develop a "hole" and leak and re-seal, and sometimes they don't. Either way you need to tell your OB MD of this development as fetus' can get infected and die if the membranes are truly compromised. ...Read more

I am suffering from low amniotic fluid (38 weeks). Will I be allowed to go over my due late?

I am suffering from low amniotic fluid (38 weeks). Will I be allowed to go over my due late?

NOT IF you were: My pt ! ask your OB ! the standard of care is if you have oligihydramnios to not go past your due and your afi needs to be followed closely because if it gets down to 5.0 or lower u need to be delivered without delay, if it is between 5-10 u need to be watched closely , the farther u go the more chance for a cord problem like strangulation or other problems due to the low fluid. ...Read more
