Hydramnios
« on: November 13, 2016 at 12:42 PM »
I am at 30 weeks with my first. I have hydramnios, too much amniotic fluid. I was put on bed rest 2 weeks ago. I am still working from home. My friends and family are taking great care of me. My weekly ultrasound is the highlight of my week. The uterine pain that comes with this is pretty intense, especially at night when I often have contractions. The pressure from the excess fluid causes pain, so even eating (adding more pressure) can be difficult. Any advice from someone who has been through this?

TRS - Welcome! Sorry to hear about your condition. I don't have personal experience with hydraminosis, but because of gestational diabetes, I'm eating six small meals a day. It's kid of like grazing. :) It has helped with my reflux. Hope it helps your pain, too!
