I'm a bit paranoid. My first baby was induced due to oligohydramnios, made it just about to due date but placenta was calcifying etc. I had absolutely no idea I was lacking fluid, there were no obvious leaks. It felt no different to my second pregnancy where there was absolutely loads of waters.
Hopefully a stupid question but is it checked as routine at scans? It was only picked up with DD because I had a late scan in case the placenta was still low.
That's great thank you. I am 21 weeks today, having a second go at the scan on wed as baby was in an awkward position for half the checks. I will be having 3 growth scans due to second baby being massive at birth!
If you have scans at 28 weeks plus then yes. I was low risk however and my bump measured normal so I wasn't given any. Came to find out (after labour) that my little boy was 6lb4 and I'd got serious excess fluid which should have been monitored.
If you want to have a scan to have the fluid checked and they're not offered, push for one. Its your baby and you have a perfectly valid reason to want one of those scans. I certainly will be with my next!
