To follow Baby 5’s Journey Go HERE.
I really did not want it to sound click-bait material – however I did not know how else to phrase it.
Basically it is a somewhat important concern – I am now have weekly ultrasounds until birth because of it.
When I was at my last ultrasound I knew something was off. The tech kept remeasuring the amniotic fluid around the baby. Again. Again. and Again.
Sure enough when I met with the OB – I got the everything is “FINE” with the baby HOWEVER there is too much amniotic fluid around the baby. “It is called Polyhydramnios (pol-e-hi-DRAM-nee-os) is the excessive accumulation of amniotic fluid — the fluid that surrounds the baby in the uterus during pregnancy. Polyhydramnios occurs in about 1 to 2 percent of pregnancies.” There can be some serious consequences – but I am sure everything will be fine – especially being so close to the end and all the monitoring. If you had too much amniotic fluid during a pregnancy please let me know how it turned out.
