Answer: 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.
If you're diagnosed with polyhydramnios, your doctor will order a high-resolution ultrasound to check for abnormalities and some test for a genetic defect and infections.
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 diabetes 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 (when the cord falls through the cervical opening) or a placental abruption when your water breaks. Both require an immediate c-section.
Answer: With a high AFI level above 21, 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.
