Why didn't you ask your doctor what it means?

Had my scan and it turns out she is breech. But with the extra fluid it's just that and there is usually no issue with it other than the risk of the cord coming out first during your birth but the will keep an eye o you and scan you every week or two she said.

I have a scan today as I'm measuring ahead they tested for gestational diabetes and that came back fine so they expect it to be something called polyhydramnios which basically means excess fluid. I will let you know more when I get back this afternoon my doctor said it shouldn't be anything to worry about. Do not google! Google is not your friend in this case lol x

with my last pregnancy, I had preeclampsia and had to deliver almost 6 weeks early. Once discharged, my discharge papers listed something I had never heard of and no doctor told me anything about.
Polyhydramnios. I looked up the issue. It only happens in 1% of all pregnancies.
Too much amniotic fluid. Something d not quite right with the baby swallowing in fluid and urinating back out  hence.... to much fluid.
Or ease later I w told my baby girl had issues sqallowing and our would take additional time or fragmented feedings for her tho way but beyond that she was ok. Considering that, the extreme preeclampsia

Considering that, the severe preeclampsia, i was happy my baby did as well as she did. She is a year old now and i am pregnant expecting another. 15 weeks along at this point.
And like the rare polyhydromnios, I was one of the rare that my high blood pressure did not go away.
Since last year I have had to Deepak with that and the fear/knowledge that I will get preecamplsia again. But i am excited
