Question: Doctor diagnosed more amniotic fluid in my 26th week

Question
Answer: Hello! More amniotic fluid or polyhydramnios  is harmless, but it does have the potential to cause serious pregnancy complications. But in severe cases, there are certain risks, including: Pre-term Labor Premature Birth Excess fetal growth Placental abruption (the placenta detaching from the wall of the uterus before you give birth) Postpartum hemorrhage Umbilical cord prolapse (the cord falling out of the vagina before the baby) Fetal malposition Stillbirth In such case try to take rest as much as possible.  If you feel breathless: try and avoid climbing stairs as much as possible do household chores in small bursts, and take your time if help is offered, accept it, and get plenty of rest It may be that you have heartburn because your uterus is pushing against your stomach. To ease this: eat small amounts regularly try not to lie down straight after a meal don't eat just before going to bed don't eat or drink anything which makes your heartburn worse, such as spicy food try to sleep propped up in bed ask your doctor for an antacid prescription Polyhydramnios will probably make you feel anxious. It may also make you feel on the large side. But there are ways to lessen your anxiety: Gather as much information as you can, as early as you can, at your antenatal classes. Find enjoyable distractions. If you're too self-conscious about your size to go out, invite friends over, or catch up on DVDs. If you have polyhydramnios and notice new symptoms, or if your existing symptoms become worse, call your doctor or go to your nearest hospital immediately. Take care
