I had my OB appt today and my excess amnio fluid issue is much worse. I am gigantic. My uterus is measureing 34wks!!! My doc told me to go see MFM dr this week for another ultrasound to check baby's ventricle again as well as my fluid level. Said I might need a decompressive amnio to relieve pressure and meds to prevent preterm labor. MFM dr just called me and said I need to come in now. If Lukas' ventricle increases he might need intrauterine surgery. I am sooooo sick of having issues. Please keep your fingers crossed that Lukas' brain has remained stable instead of worse. I feel in my heart that he is fine. I'm more worried about popping early due to the pressure of so much fluid. I will post later tonight to update you all.



Update:
Lukas's ventricle remained stable. My fluid is ridiculously high but my cervix is good. MFM Dr wants to put me on disability or at least modified work. I have to go in weekly for ultrasound checks of fluid and cervix. They are running additional genetic tests on my amnio sample from earlier this month which came back normal. They say something is wrong with the baby but they don't know what exactly. From what they say having extra fluid is an indicator that the baby is not swallowing enough of the fluid or is peeing too much of it out. I asked twice to be sure if it could be caused by something malfunctioning with my body and they say no, that it is something related to the baby, not me. It could be me if it was GD, but in my dr's words my glucose test came back "stone cold normal". They are going to repeat the GD test next week just in case. My drs are consulting/discussing meds to prevent labor and a decompressive amnio as well as a fetal MRI. I'm instructed to go to the hospital for any contractions, which I find silly/ironic considering I always feel like I'm contracting due to the tightness in my belly. Thanks for all your prayers. I wish it was something wrong with me, not Lukas. I'm praying it's GD at this point and they just didn't catch it for some reason...
