Hi, everyone. I am 32 wks. pregnant and had an U/S on Friday. I found out a couple of things that are really worrying me. I can't get in to see the doctor until Wednesday, so I wanted to get some opinions from the experts.
The U/S showed me to be 35 wks. pregnant, with a slight excess of amniotic fluid and a baby weight of 5 lbs. 6 oz. At this point the baby should weigh only 3 lbs. 12 oz. on average.
Some background info:
* I had a 1 hour glucose test at the standard time (24 wks maybe?). It was slightly high, so I had to go for a 3 hour glucose test, and those results were all normal.
* Due dates calculated using my LMP & the very first U/S were one day off, and the level of HcG was right on target at that time.
* I feel plenty of fetal movement, almost constantly while I am at rest.
Now, my questions for you guys are:
#1: The NP said that the hydramnios can signal problems with the baby.
In your personal/professional experience, how often does this mean there is something wrong? What types of problems have you noted most often? Are those problems easily fixed? Have you ever seen a fetal demise with hydramnios?
#2: Have you ever heard of someone who was found to have gestational diabetes, even after her 3-hour gtt came back normal? I should add that I have all the s/sx: thirst, hunger, polyuria, blurred vision, and my mom is NIDDM.
#3: Is it possible that this is all no big deal? Maybe he is just a big baby and maybe I just have a little extra fluid?
Thank you all in advance for your help.
