    Default "Increased fluid" at 36 weeks

    Hi ladies
    I had a growth scan on Friday at 36+4 weeks due to bub having a small hc on scans at 19 and 34 weeks. Whilst the hc is growing steadily, the report noted that I have "increased fluid for gestational age" with the AFI being 19.3cm and deepest pool 5.6cm. On the graph it was above the 95%ile. It has been week within the normal range on all previous scans.

    So, stupidly, I of course googled and have freaked myself out with all the possibilities of what this could mean. Has anyone had experience with this and gone on to have a healthy bub? Did you need to be induced or c section? I'm hoping to find out more this week once the ob at the hospital has reviewed scan.

    Thanks

    Hi, with my last pregnancy I had polyhydrominos. I always measured 4-5weeks ahead. I had many scans and there was no reason for this in my case. I went on and delivered a perfectly healthy bub at 38 weeks. I too googled and freaked myself out. Sometimes it can indicate a problem with the baby but alot of times there is no reason.

    I had polyhydramnios with my last pregnancy, diagnosed at 22 weeks and measured 8-10 weeks ahead for the remainder of the pregnancy. I delivered by CS at 38w 5d (but I had had a previous CS, so was advised against VBAC).

    My AFI was 23-25. I was told 8-18 is "normal" so you're not too far over. I was also told 60% of cases have no known cause and that was the case for me. No GD (had extra testing as diagnosed early), no blood pressure issues. No issues with bub but he was big (4.2kg, but my first was 4.7kg with no complications).

    Definitely stop googling! I did it too and it's hard not to, but you really just need to wait and see the specialist. My poly bub has recently turned 3yrs and has had absolutely no health issues at all. I hope it's the same for you. :-)

    Ladies I had a growth scan at 30 weeks and my AFI was 24.5cm. I saw the dr two weeks later and she didn't say anything but she wrote on my 34 week growth scan request that my AFI was 24.5cm...should I be concerned?

    Big hugs op I went straight to google aswell and have stressed myself silly over it
