I had my 28 week appt today. Only gained 4 lbs since last time so that's nice. She was feeling around trying to see where the baby's head was to see where to start the doppler, and she mentioned that "there's alot of water in there". She measured me and I'm measuring 2 to 3 weeks ahead. She said that she's not concerned, she'll send me for an ultrasound. It's possible that 1. it's just a big baby and that's why I'm measuring ahead, 2. there is tissue (fat) pushing my uterus up making it appear I have more fluid than I do or 3. I have polyhydroamniosis. Oh or 4 which is that I have GD. This was the first appt that I'm measuring ahead and everything looked ok on the u/s at 20 weeks so I'm not sure what to think.
So she's sending in the referral for the u/s. I'm going to take the first appt they have open so I can find out what's going on. She said she's not concerned at all, but if it is polyhydroamniosis then it could mean that the baby has an issue with it's kindeys.
She said though that everything is ok and she doesn't want me to worry, but now I'm freaking out because I googled. Don't google !!
I'm going to go do my GD test Monday or Tuesday so we'll know the results from that at my next appt. I'm doing 2 week appts now! I can't believe things are that close already!!
Keep your fingers crossed please that if it is pha that there is nothing wrong with the baby. Thanks.
Thanks ladies. Heather, polyhydroaminiosis just means an excess of amniotic fluid. The u/s will be able to tell if I do have an excess of fluid, and if I do hopefully they can determine that it's not due to something wrong with the baby.
Best wishes for great results. It sounds like it with so many reasons and that being last, that she may be right and there is nothing to worry about. During your anatomy scan everything looked good, so try not to stress too much. I bet your baby is perfect!
Google is evil, I was always bad for it when I was going through treatment. So bad that I remember my RE once saying to me "so when you google this, you'll find two distinct camps..." and went on to explain the pros and cons and describe what I would likely find. I was so busted that day.
