I have absolutely no advice, but wanted to send you happy thoughts! Can’t wait to hear your birth story and see pictures of your new baby! 🙂 You are getting close!

This happened to my friend’s mom when she was pregnant with my friend.  My friend came out normal but now she is obsessed with mermaids!

We have one friend that had this, although when she found out she was about 7 months.  She ended up having to deliver early (about 6 weeks early, so around 34 weeks) but everything was fine with the baby and she had to have a little surgery but she’s completely fine.

This happened to my coworker, but I think they also discovered it when she was not as far along as you. Anyways, she had to go in for extra U/S monthly and they said that if she did not go into labor by her due date they would induce her that day, but I think that was it. She and the baby are fine.

I don’t have experience, but I just wanted to add my support.  Here’s hoping nothing major is wrong and that BabyV comes soon!

I believe that that may have been this blogger’s experience (I know for sure that she had a tooon of amniotic fluid): http://www.polkadotsandpearls.com/

She had a c-section, but I don’t remember why/if it had to do with the fluid. 

ETA: just checked, and she had a 26! And everything turned out fine with her and her baby 🙂

@KellyV:  You may get a c-section.  I know my friend did since they had, for her, to do a little surgery b/c of the issue in addition to delivering the baby.

 

Just remember, it will be ok.  May not be fun but it will work out.

@KellyV: I work in NICU as an RN – we get called to all high risk deliveries, and polyhydramnios isn’t even considered a risk factor serious enough to have us present! It is common enough to barely warrant most of us to blink an eye when we see it on the history sheet. Don’t stress, I am sure all will be more than [email protected]!

My advice:

1. if it started at 38 weeks, it is less concerning for the stuff I bet you found when you googled.  Odds are the baby will be totally fine.  

2. NEVER google medical problems.  If you are somewhat anxious to begin with, multiply this advice times thirty.
