Question: My amniotic fluid is more than what it should be at this stage. I am 32 weeks pregnant and my fluid is around 20percent whereas the doc said it should be 18. Is it something to worry about?
Answer: Hi dear,
During pregnancy,amniotic fluid is the protective barrier or cushion for your baby. Though we never think about it at initial stages of pregnancy,but later stages it becomes an important criteria to detect baby's health. Women with inadequate AFI and women with more AFI are both not normal for sure. More than normal ranges fluid could lead to preterm labor by increasing more pressure build up. It could also be due to few reasons:
1- mother's sugar level out of control
2-baby not swallowing enough fluid
3- baby producing excessive urine
4- swelling up in baby's body with excess fluid
5- genetic reasons
Certain complications attached to this is preterm labor and Babies are also more likely to move into positions which aren’t ideal for birth.
There are certain treatments for this .you can talk to your doctor if it is really required.
