I haven't been officially diagnosed...but it looks like I have lots of extra fluid in there. My last two checks I've measured 4cm and yesterday 5cm ahead. So I'm measuring 39cm and I'm not even 34 weeks. I feel like I should be 39 weeks and ready to have a baby! I have swollen hands and feet too that get better and worse at different points of the day.
I'm having an u/s to make sure that it's not the baby who isn't swallowing or something...but my gut says the baby's ok. My glucose screen was just perfect. Oh and my weight is insane too along with the large measuring. I've gained 40 lbs, which would be normal for me if I were term.
Dandelion leaf has been recommended to me in terms of drinking in a tea. I'm considering acupuncture... I'd really like to not have some of this fluid. It just makes me feel sooo big!
I've found some great articles/websites and having this start around 30 weeks is much better than seeing it at 20 weeks. But there are concerns about labor and birth due to extra fluid and I wonder if I'll risk out of a homebirth.
Premature labor is also a concern as the uterus is just soo full. It sounds like I don't feel at the upper level of full, so that is good too.
I've done this two times before and this pregnancy at this point feels very different and not right.
I've searched the forums and found others who've gone through this, but most were from years ago.
