I'm in week 37, and I may have polyhydramnios - aka more amnionic fluid than normal. Anyone have any experience with this? I am not diabetic, or carrying multiples, and the early tests I took for Downs made it seem very unlikely that baby has it- anyone ever just have it for no reason at all, and have a perfectly healthy baby in the end?View Thread
Usually babies balance the levels out by ingesting the fluid - unless something's up -like a kidney problem- or any number of other things that are pretty remote. It's just frustrating when everything isn't perfect and worry free. I can't wait to get this baby out in the open, where I can be sure that s/he is safe-!!
Good luck with you & your LO, and I hope everything is a perfect as it should be.View Thread
