Message length 300 characters recommended

This is called Polyhydramnios, I had it with my last pregnancy . I had 3 times the amount of fluid that is normal . It was very uncomfortable because my belly was stretched to the max with all of the fluid . I had to be monitored very closely the last 2 1/2 months . 2 non stress tests a week and weekly fluid checks by ultrasound . There can be some conditions of the gastrointestinal track that can cause this issue but thankfully my little guy didn't have any problems , just to much fluid . They had to induce me early because I stared to dilate and there is a risk of the cord or placenta coming before babies head if there is a big gush of fluid when your water breaks .
