32 week appointment

It went well. I only gained 1lb Yahoo

hb was great, bp was great

got more results from the ultrasound. SHe was measuring at 30 weeks (I was 29 weeks at the time), size was in the 81 percentile and my fluid level was above 20 so they want to keep an eye on that. I have another ultrasound on Monday.

On to 2 week appointments (actually 3 weeks because they couldn't get me in until 35 weeks)!!!

Honestly, I have no clue! I don't even know what is bad about having too much fluid? More room to swim for the baby?

Between 8-18 is considered a normal fluid level. Below 5 they will usually induce, 20-24 they also sometimes become concerned.

I read it means the kidneys could be malfunctioning, babys

Yay for a pretty good appt! I had low fluid with DD around this time. Not sure what's going on with this baby as I haven't had a recent u/s and likely won't if he/she stays head down.

Good work on only gaining 1 lb!

I read it can't be confirmed till after birth that's why they watch it. Could be nothing wrong.

I was reading more and my level is only slightly over, so there shouldn't be too much to worry about. They are probably only monitoring it to make sure it doesn't go higher.
