I have a brain shunt. When I get pregnant is it likely that my cerebral fluid will increase and I will have to get my shunt dial adjusted?

In brief: Possibly

A lady's fluid status increases profoundly during pregnancy so it is entirely possible that you might need your shunt adjusted.
Make sure you are followed closely by your neurologist.
