Amniotic fluid is the nourishing and protecting liquid contained by the amniotic sacs of pregnant women, and grows and begins to fill around two weeks gestation. At about ten weeks, the amniotic liquid contains proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, phospholipids, electrolytes and a number of other nutrients that help with growth.
This fluid passes from your circulatory system to the amniotic sac, and early in the second trimester, your baby aids in the recycling of this fluid. If and when this process breaks down, you can end up with too little or too much fluid; and either issue can cause problems.
Too much amniotic fluid is called polyhydramnios, and occurs in only about 1% of pregnancies. The symptoms of polyhydramnios are few, if any and result from pressure being put on the uterus or nearby organs.
Treatments depend on the severity of your condition- most cases are mild, or moderate- an on whether or not the cause has been identified. Most mild cases in which the cause is unknown will sort themselves out as the pregnancy goes on.
In severe cases, amniotic fluid can be drained; this can cause you or increase the risk of premature labor. Complications with this procedure are not common.
High levels of amniotic fluid are not known to commonly cause problems with labor, but it is recommended you utilize a facility rather than a home birth to decrease risk if a complication arises. Post birth, you should face no issues, and should be able to nurse your child and care for them as usual. If your child does come early, and is in the NICU, you may be encouraged to purchase a breast pump to establish or keep your milk supply.
