Question: Hi i am 28 weeks pregnant, my amniotic fluid index is 18.6. Is it normal. Doctor said u'r amniotic fluid index is high.Naturally can i reduce fluid?
Answer: Hi it gets very complicated to go for a normal delivery.Your doctor has to drain the excess fluid with canulas if you really want to go for a normal delivery with high blood pressure which puts you on bleeding risk and preeclampsia. It would be better if you try to control your b.p and take medications timely. For c section wait till a week.

Question: normal amniotic fluid index in 8 month pregnancy.
Answer: Hii. Amniotic fluid index.( AFI ) between 8-18 is considered normal. Median AFI level is approximately 14 from week 20 to week 35, when the amniotic fluid begins to reduce in preparation for birth. An AFI < 5-6 is considered as oligohydramnios.

Question: Hii i am 27 weeks pregnant.. today i had an USG and was diagnosed with polyhydramnios.. with amniotic fluid index as 23.0 cm.. Is it a matter of great concern?
Answer: Hi! Amniotic Fluid Index or AFI is considered to be normal at 8-18. Medium AFI level is approximately 14 from week 20-35. After that it keeps reducing and prepare for birth however if its 23.0 now its more than normal. Its a condition where you have more amniotic fluid in the sac and your Dr. may use a process calles amniocentesis to drain the excess water which can be harmful for the baby and it is associated with risk factor like pre term birth or placental abruption etc. Please follow Dr. s instruction. Good luck!
