Polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid)

Hi, does anyone got any experiences with Polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid)?

I had a scan at 32 weeks and then today, at 36 weeks, where this was seen. Consultant didn't seem overly concerned, and I feel well (no other swelling etc....). Have been tested for GD a few weeks ago and all fine. Am overweight, but have hardly gained any weight this pregnancy (only 6 pounds so far).

The consultant wants to give me a sweep at 40 weeks if I don't go into labour beforehand.

I went into labour with my first at 36+1. No reason was ever detected, but there is a good possibility that this was the reason then as well. I didn't have any late scans then.

So... what's my chance of making it to 40 weeks? And at 40 weeks, to go into labour quickly after a sweep?
