@MrsR4ever:  Oh hun, I don’t have any input/advice.  I know they check to make sure you have enough fluid if you go past due, but I didn’t even know HIGH fluid was a thing!  Just wanted to drop a line, send positive thoughts, and to wish you luck!

A friend of mine had this happen I think at 25-27 weeks and everything turned out fine! They just monitored her closely but now she has a healthy baby girl! FX for you mama.

@MrsR4ever:  I didn’t even know this could be a thing, but definitely thinking about you. Stay away from Dr. G – no good will come out of that.

Labor and delivery nurse here….this can be a sign of abnormalities in the baby OR just a fluke. Do not worry yourself over it. That is what your doctor is for. Let them do the extra ultrasounds and monitoring. It may resolve on its own. Some people with polyhydraminios (extra fluid) have more contractions because the uterus is stretched farther. Just be aware of signs of preterm labor.

@MrsR4ever:  DONT GOOGLE! That is my advice for anyone who has a medical ailment. Google will tell you the absolute worst!

Wait to hear what your doctor says, and go with his advice!

No experience or advice with this, just popping in as a fellow May momma to say thinking about you and I’m sure all will be well. 🙂 It sounds like they are being cautious and paying attention by bringing you back in just a week.

Yes, Google is bad. I had the opposite problem, lower fluids and Google stressed me out.

I’m sure everything will be just fine! 🙂

I also have polyhydramnios, though they didn’t find it until 32 weeks. Basically, most of the time there’s no identifiable cause for it. There’s an increased risk for some complications, like cord prolapse or placental abruption. If your levels are only “slightly” elevated, there may not be much to worry about. I’ve read from lots of women who had polyhydramnios and were fine and had healthy births/babies. I’ve just found it to be super uncomfortable being this big and full of fluid! Let us know what your doc says, but mine hasn’t seemed concerned at all.

hugs! I didn’t know this was a thing either. I’m sure now that they know about it they will be keeping a close eye on you and baby, which is the best possible thing. The way I think? – I ‘d be grateful I had to go in for another ultrasound (in your case to check the placenta) – because otherwise they wouldn’t know you have this! I think you are definitely in the best possible hands now and I’m sure your pregnancy and little baby R will be just fine 🙂
