Question: what happens if Amniotic fluid index is above the range?
Answer: Polyhydramnios is a condition where a woman simply has too much amniotic fluid during her pregnancy. As a rule of thumb, polyhydramnios is usually diagnosed with an AFI over 25 or a big pocket of fluid on the ultrasound of over 8 cm. Do you have diabetes or gestational diabetes? Keep a control over your sugar level. In your case is it not very high…& it shouldn’t affect you baby but it might lead to some complications in delivery. • Increased risk of a breech baby (with more fluid, the baby can have trouble getting head down) • increased risk of uterine cord prolapse, which is when the umbilical cord slips out of the uterus and into the vagina before delivery of the baby • increased risk of bleeding complications after birth (the uterus can simply get stretched out and tired) • premature labor and delivery
