I need to vent to someone about this as I am a nervous wreck. I didn't want to tell Jacqui the other day, but the ultrasound didn't go so well. The baby looks good and everything is ok except for my amniotic fluid. I have too much. The drs said that about 1 out of every 100 girls that comes into her office a week has it. She said that they are going to see me on the 6th to see if it gets better. She said that if it doesn't get better and they have to deliver early, they will. WHich is nuts to me as I am only 21 weeks. I looked it up online, bad idea, and it says defects in the baby could be the cause. I am scared to death and am praying this baby is ok. I don't know what to think. It also says it can cause stillbirth if it gets too bad. They will see if it decreases first, then treat it with meds and if they don't work they will surgically remove some of it. The symptoms in the mother are shortness of breath and also discomfort in the belly, which for the past few weeks I have been complaining of both. I just didn't know what it was from.
Just say a prayer the baby is ok and that it decreases on its own. Thanks so much...
