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

I have been diagnosed with having too much amniotic fluid. The nurse also made a comment about my umbilical chord being thick. I'm 31 weeks pregnant & worried about what's causing it. My sugar levels are normal?

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

Hiii doctor...my friend,she is 28 yrs old,10 weeks pregnant,primi,  has amniotic fluid leakage.why it is happens and what is the management?

How diagnosed?: Amniotic fluid leakage is not often diagnosed as early as 10 weeks. There can be some increase in vaginal secretions or some urine loss that look like leakage of the amniotic fluid. If it is truly amniotic fluid, the only treatment this early is observation with nothing in the vagina and close monitoring of temperature hoping that the hole in the sac will heal over and she won't get infected. ...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 34 weeks and 5 days and the amniotic fluid is measuring at 26cm, what does that mean?

Polyhydramnios: Your amniotic fluid level is a bit high. I would expect that your doctor would be rechecking this at least weekly and if not already done you should be seen by a perinatologist. ...Read more
