Question: Is amniotic fluid polyhydramnios at 33 weeks a serious concern or it can be dealt with it?
Answer: Hello dear
Polyhydramnios is a medical condition describing an excess of amniotic fluid in the amniotic sac. It is seen in about 1% of pregnancies. It is typically diagnosed when the amniotic fluid index is greater than 24 cm.
Normally afi should be in between 8-18cm
Hi. If your afi level is more than 25cm you are polyhydromnios means more amniotic fluid.
If so you will be monitored closely as pre term contraction or labour me happen.
A high-resolution ultrasound to check for abnormalities and some test for a genetic defect and infections will be performed.
You'll also need to have regular nonstress testor ultrasounds for the rest of your pregnancy to monitor your baby's development. And you'll be watched closely for signs of preterm labor. There are chances of gestational diabetes too so doctor will ask to go for diabeties test also.
You'll be monitored carefully during labor as well. Because of the extra amniotic fluid, there's a greater risk of an umbilical cord prolapse or a placental abruption when your water breaks. Both require an immediate c-section.
