High Level Of Amniotic Fluid

diazzo - May 3

I am new here, and I am in my 30th week with my first child. I was just told last week that I have Gestational Diabetes and my Amniotic Fluid is high. I am just wondering if anyone else is going through this, and if anyone can fill me in with any information, I am totally in the dark with this. My Dr. keeps saying not to worry, but I have to start going to the Dr. and the Hospital for Bi weekly physicals, so I am starting to worry, any help would be great

Hey there, I also have a high AF level. It's not anything you should worry about a whole lot. They just have me come in for non-stress tests twice a week. They do that to make sure the baby's not in an distress. I guess because there is more fluid in there, they have more room to move around which could cause some problems with the cord. But my baby is fine now and I'm sure yours will be too don't worry!

I just found out that I have this too. It is called polyhyramnios. ( lots of fluid)I go back to the doctors on Monday. I am not sure if I will be getting a non-stress test or not. How long do non-stress tests take? Have your physicans said anything about needing a c-section?

If your baby coroperates a non-stress test should take about 30 min. They sometimes have to wake them up and it can take longer. Mine is always stubborn! You shouldn't be needing a c-section due to polyhydramnios unless they find that the baby is in distress.
