What does it mean if you are told there is too much amniotic fluid?

Too much amniotic fluid is otherwise known as polyhydramnios (amniotic fluid is baby's urinne, which is recycled by baby swallowing it). In most cases, there is nothing wrong with you or baby. If there is an underlying cause for the polyhydramnios, it may be because of gestational diabetes or 'impaired glucose tolerance' in you. Much more rarely, fetal swallowing problems, blockages in the baby's oesophagus or stomach or even chromosome problems can be linked to polyhydramnios. Your obstetrician will be able to tell you more-and we hope reassure you.
