We got our 24 week scan today and baby WAM is doing great however our surrogate has got mild polyhydramnios with an AFI of 21.9cm, this means there is an elevated amount of amniotic fluid around the baby. This can be caused by many things, one of them being gestational diabetes, our surrogate is having a blood test tomorrow to rule this out.
Our doctor does not seem to worried about this and has said it is a mild case and some times the fluid goes up for no reason, also the scan report has found no foetal cause for this problem.
Has anyone experienced or know anything about this?
