I am in the same boat. Went in for my 32 week growth scan and I had a generous amount of fluid. My midwife made me go take a 3 hour glucose test even though I passed my 1 hour one because high fluid levels are usually a sign of gestational diabetes. Needless to say I failed my 3 hour test with flying colors..lol so I had to see a nutrionist and changed my diet and now have to,check my glucose levels everyday. The change in diet (low carb diet) has helped a lot with bringing some of my fluid levels down. I saw the regular doctor last week at almost 37 weeks to talk about birthing options and he said because of the GD I will for sure be induced before 39 weeks because they don't want the baby to be too big, which 2 weeks ago they estimated her at 8 lbs. So hopefully by next week I will have my baby! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and try not to worry too much!

I am 30 weeks and have been diagnosed with polyhydramnios.  I had the same condition with my last pregnancy.  Both times I have tested negative for diabetes.  With my last pregnancy I was monitored twice a week, and induced at 37 weeks to have my water break in a controlled environment due to the pressure from all the fluid.  I was able to deliver naturally.  Baby only spent a few days in the NICU.  I am hoping for the best this time as well!  Let me know if you have questions!
