i had a scan yesterday at 26+5 and my deepest pool of fluid was measuring at 10cm. I went to see my consultant after and I'm having the test for diabeties tomorrow and I have another scan with a specialist in 2 weeks. I'm now freaking out and very worried that something is going to be wrong with my little man. At my 20 week scan there was nothing to show something wrong with bubba. Any one been through this and can offer some advice would be much appreciated. Thanks x

I had too much fluid also. It's nothing to worry about. They might just want to induce you rather then let you go natural. The only concern is that if your waters break and there is a lot of fluid, it just means that the baby has a chance of turning in the water and becoming breach so they'd rather break your waters in a controlled environment. I was induced at 38+5. There was a lot of water- it was quite comical. But that was it, everything else was fine. Don't worry and good luck x

I have too much water.
I wouldn't worry too much if have diabetes that's the cause of my high fluid.
I'm 37 weeks and waiting for my section they have decided to deliver me early because for this.
I have had weekly scans to monitor the fluid.
Also spent some time in hospital because they were afraid they could go at anytime.
It can be a scary thing but it's something the hospital monitor closely.
Also mine went down then back up so it's a possibility that the fluid will reduce as your pregnancy progresses.
Don't worry about it too much.
