I'm 39 years old and 29 weeks. The amniotic fluid is 18.4 cm, my blood pressure is normal and scan shows two arteries & one vein of the umbilical cord. The doctors are saying that the baby could have birth defect. Can the pregnancy be continued?
I'm currently 32 weeks pregnant with my second baby and I have too much amniotic fluid. My current AFI is 23.4 and I'm due to be scanned in a weeks time. There are no apparent reasons for this fluid as baby is on the 75th centile and is swallowing and taking fluid in. All my blood tests have come back negative including GTT and TORCH screen. I have been scared stiff by various doctors telling me I may go into premature labour with various complications such as placental abruption and prolapsed cord. Please tell me something positive!
What does it mean if you are told there is too much amniotic fluid?
