I talked to a pregnant mama at dd1's school today. She is feeling very uncomfortable, big for 5 1/2 mos, tight, etc. She had an ultrasound today and the doc said she has too much fluid. So he put her on antibiotics. She just said, "He's a famous doctor; I guess I'll trust him." But we're in Ukraine, lady!

Being the all-natural mama that I am, I can't help being alarmed at this.

What should be going on this scenario?

I did some searches here and on Google and haven't found much, and I don't have time to do more. Sorry if it's a basic question.
