33 weeks pregnant with elevated Amniotic Fluid Levels

Recommended Posts

shivani

I am new to this blog, I am 33 weeks pregnant with elevated amniotic fluid level 23.3, at 32 weeks it was 25.5.Did anyone had this situation. I heard if AFI level is not normal it leads to c section and many other complications. I want to have normal delivery giving my best by closely monitoring sugar levels, maintaining normal weight. Tomorrow I have an big ultrasound to see baby growth like weight, length. Its all kind of new to me and I dont have any freinds or relatives who are diabetic moms...... It would be very helpful if someone can share their experiences with high AFI levels.

hello -

 

I had my 34 week ultrasound this AM. The OB said that my amniotic fluid was slightly above 'average' but nothing to worry about. He also said that a good amount of amniotic fluid can be helpful during labour as it can help protect the umbilical cord. I wasn't worried at all. Even though my fluids were slightly higher, they still gave baby a score of 8/8.

 

Your medical team will let you know if there is anything to be concerned about - otherwise I wouldn't worry too much. I know it's hard and sometimes easier said than done. With all of the appointments, I find myself being given too much information and data and sometimes don't know what to do with it all.

 

I'm getting to the point where I can't wait to be left alone with my baby and forget about being a type one pregnant diabetic.

Welcome Shivani!

 

CaitE - I love when you respond because I'm just a few weeks behind you - so you always give information that I find to be helpful!

 

I just had a 30w ultrasound earlier this week. They seemed mostly concerned with me having "enough" fluid. I think having too little is a bigger concern.

My understanding is that Type 1s tend to have excess fluid. However, I don't think that alone should lead to C Section.

 

Hoping others respond...
