hi all another update my fluid has increased now that it is way off the chart so im on tablets to reduce it for a week. baby still hasnt grown much they couldnt offer me the chromosone test due to me going into labour because of the fluid amount, im only 27 weeks. another scan again in 10 days to check fluid level and baby growth possible chromosone test but again possible early labour... so i have been given steroids to mature babys lungs for when he is born. whatever happens he will be born premature... really scared and i keep getting upset and blaming myself it's my first baby and it's not really how i pictured my first pregnancy. but knowing that other people have the large amount of fluid is a relief so i know i am not on my own....x
I had polyhydramnious when I was pregnant with my daughter (10 months old tomorrow!) It didn't affect her growth - she was a healthy 9lb 3.5oz!
So that it doesn't worry you when the time comes, you should know that they may want to monitor the baby more throughout labour (which is a good thing in any case!) and try not to eat anything with too strong a flavour before you go into hospital, as when your waters break they go with quite a lot of force, which in my case made me sick due to the pressure change (at which point I decided I shouldn't have had garlic bread for dinner lol).
Most of the time having excess water isn't anything to worry about, they might just want to keep a close eye on you.
Good luck everyone

Hiya Ladies I saw my consultant yesterday who has told me that I have extra fluid and needed to book in for a torch blood test and gd test, I wasn't sure what the problems could be with carrying extra fluid and so stupidly I googled it BIG BIG MISTAKE! I am now really worried and wished that I hadn't looked it up on the internet, the only thing I can get any comfort from at the the moment is the Consultant didn't seem too worried at the time and said bump is growing in line with what is expected.
Please excuse this stupid question but where are you carrying this extra water? Why I ask is because at the bottom of my tummy I also have water stored (like a camel) and the consultant did not seem worried but I am.

Hi, I also got told the same last week i went into hospital with pains and i'm 26 weeks. they sent me for a specialist scan and found that i have a large amount of fluid round baby and baby has measured small. I also have another problem of a smaller uterus (bicornuate uterus) which causes me more problems because my body can not hold all the water in the small amount of space so i am due to go into labour any time.... it gave me a shock but knowing that other women have the same kind of thing helps me through it...... hope you get through it all ok
