Anyone have high amniotic fluid in one sac?

My twins are di/di.. but baby A's fluid is nearing the 8 (mm/unit?) mark.. Baby B is around 5. I know I'm asking a little early bc it's not over 8 yet, but every week I get my CL checked & the number has increased a little. Just curious if anyone else has had this happen.. is there anything I can do preventitively? What did your doctor do/tell you?

Any advice/input? I'm not really worrying yet.. I'm just a huge planner and I like to be informed. TIA!

  • I was told I did at one appointment. The dr did not seem too concerned but did mention they would keep an eye on it and it posed a slight risK for prom. I dont know what the measurements were. It never came up again and I was induced later for other unrelated complications. Good luck!

    I have but my Mono/Di twins were diagnosed w TTTS. This is rare only 15% of Mono/Di twins get this. I have had my regular monthly prenatal apts. But i also had to get additional US at the hospital every 3 wks.
    At 17wks they noticed that one twin had a lot more fluid than the other and suspected TTTS (I believe one had .7mm and the other had 10.3 mm of fluid) So since then I have had a procedure done. Part of the procedure was to remove the excess fluid which was a little over 1 liter.

    I am not implying this is your issue , so don't freak out( you have DI/DI) this shouldn't be an issue for you .. Just keep your apts and make sure they monitor you and ask any questions that you may have , so you can have piece of mind.

  •  At around 20 weeks,  it was discovered that one sac had excess fluid with my mo/di twins.  It was not due to TTTS, it was just a one of those things that can happen with a multiple pregnancy. I was given the steroid injections at 28 weeks as a precaution in case I went into early labor...I didn't.  Towards the end of the pregnancy the level regulated itself and it was no longer an issue.  I ended up making it to my C-section date at 36 weeks and 2 days and delivered two healthy babies.
