Did any of you guys have high fluid levels during any of your pregnancy? I did have high fluid with Donovin but not enough to be diagnosed with an issue.

Yesterday I had an ultrasound and was diagnosed with too much amniotic fluid and of course I googled it and read a ton of things that I didn't want to know. I think my fluid was just above the high normal at 25.4cm and normal is between 5 and 25.

Baby is measuring in the 85th percentile and is 6lbs 14oz. I have one month before my C-section so they are predicting him to be between 8lbs 7oz and 9lb 7oz. Everything looked great they said. But after reading all that information I can't help but worry.

Did they actually diagnose you with anything or tell you something you should be doing about it? If not, then it's probably not a huge deal. You are only very slightly over normal so it's probably ok.

I am sure everything is fine! And stop googling!!!! When I was pregnant with Olive I had some medical issues and google made me feel 10x worse. Enjoy this last month. If the Dr.s aren't worried, I wouldn't be either.

I was diagnosed with polyhydraminos. She just gave me a bunch of "do immediately if you go into labor rules" Which is what made me google. She didn't tell me anything was wrong just insisted I come in if I have 3 to 4 strong contractions in an hour and if my water breaks get to the hospital within 30mins.

All different from there standard rules of wait until contractions start after your water breaks and to go to the hospital if I have 5 or more contractions in an hour as long as they have consistency.

I am going to try and not to worry about it. Thank goodness this has been the worst thing I have had to worry about otherwise I think I would go crazy.

My cousin had too much fluid, but all was okay. I agree witthe advice to stay away from the Internet, but I would have looked it up too.

I definitely did with my first pg. There were so many other issues that it just pretty much came with the territory.

Ellie and Bella were pretty much normal levels.
