Answer: Hi, Increase in fluid levels is known as polyhydraminas.It can be mild or severe.Incase of mild not much treatment is required.you will be advised bed rest for a few days and hoopefully excess liquid gets reduced as pregnancy advances.Try and keep sugar levels at optimum. Incase it is severe you will need to undergo investigations to rule out any congenital or genetic abnormality. Treatment with cox 2 inhibitor medication will be prescribed.A procedure called as amnioreduction may be advised too. If the condition gets stabilized then normal delivery is possible too. Please consult your doctor to know your exact situation so as to be well prepared for the treatment and outcome.

    Thank you for the update. Currently it's mild. Not severe. Hence have reduced intake of sugar in the form of sweets, chocolates, ice cream, fruit juices. Only sugar I intake is via the food. Is this alright or more precautions needs to be taken? And is it ok to have fruits
