Question: Hello... I am 29 weeks pregnant my amniotic fluid gone high level 20... I have a risk of premature delivery
Yes dear. Premature delivery can happen but for now you need to be calm and be under doctors diagnosis.
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 diabeties 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.
