I have massive amounts of amniotic fluid that is bordering on way-too-much/scary.
What it means:
I have to take another glucose test soon (tomorrow or Wed) and come back for another ultrasound in 4 weeks.
If I have gestational diabetes:
I watch my diet, take it easy, and continue to have the baby monitored.
If I don't:
The doctor kind of gets worried because we need to find out as to why I have so much fluid.
Worst Case Scenario:
If I don't monitor carefully or change my diet (or they can't figure out why I have so much fluid), then the uterine wall may thin out, the placenta may detach, it may induce early labor, the umbilical cord may fall out of my cervix before the baby has a chance to enter my pelvic area, which would all equal: Preemie baby via C-section.
Baby looks fabulous. He's nearly 2 1/2 pounds now, moves around a lot, still has all major organs (that are working perfectly), and is still a boy (haha!). Anyway, the doctor is confident that the worst-case scenario is very unlikely because my midwife caught the massive measurements so quickly.
So, there you go! I'm happy with the results and am feeling very peaceful about the situation. But I think I'm going to try and eat more veggies and lay off the sugar for a while...
P.S. Thank you guys so much for caring about this! I really appreciate all your concerns and kind words...
