Had fetal wellbeing scan today due to size

Had scan today and everything was where it should just a bit big. They confirmed I am carrying way too much fluid and also carrying big baby he is measuring around 2lb12 whereas at this gestation usually theya re around 2lb3. He has a very large head that made my eyes water!

I have to go for a diabetes test on the 2nd may not looking forward to it I will then have to see consultant on the 7th. It looks like I may need to go under consultant care again instead of midwive as they are now classing it as high risk as there was so much fluid they have diagnosed it as polydramnios so have added risks.

I must admit I have been lucky that hospital have been great with everything just dont wanna do that glucose thingy now.

Hope everyone is well xxxxx

  • Hi, glad your scan went well. Is there nothing they can do about the excess fluid? Feel for you after being told he has a 'big head'! Im sure all will be well. At least you are being well looked after and they are keeping an eye on you. Good luck xx

  • Thanks to all your replies, if the fluid increases too much they can drain some with a needle but to be honest I would only have that if it were unbearable as the thought of needle going in belly near bubs scares the hell out of me I would rather waddle around lol!

    They actually think that this went undetected with my youngest as my waters went prem and they when they scanned me the day before she was born I had a lot of fluid and god didnt I know it when they went!

    They definately dont think I will go term now wether naturally of by them hurrying me up. I got to wait to see what consultant said my midwive who I have had lats 2 pregnancies is keen for me not to go natural if he still measuring big closer to the time as the largest of the girls was only 7lb and I had complications in labour and was minutes away from a c-section each time as I have a small pelvis too. Looks like it could be c-section! I am hoping not though as I dont want the long recovery, but thinking about it I dont want to risk an emergancy one.

    Sorry I have rambled, oh it looks like he has his dads nose too unlucky for him, all other scans I had he looked like the girls but this one he certainly did look like his dad!
