Doctor Appointment and Amniotic fluid

So we had our monthly appointment on Friday. I also had to drink that lovely orange soda (glucose test). I passed the glucose test at 114 (need to be under 140). The doctor said that Leyna is measuring a little big, being at 3 pounds already. He also said that my amniotic fluid level is at 33. Apparently 25 is the high end of normal. So now that has me a bit concerned after reading up on it on the internet. I just got off the phone with my doctor's office a few minutes ago and the nurse said yes, my fluid level is high but to not be concerned about it. She said the doctor is not worried, so I also should not be worried.  Well I'll tell you something.....I'm worried!!! How can I not be? We lost our first daughter, I really don't want anything to happen to this one either. I'm already always checking to make sure she's moving and worrying about her, and now I have this to add on top of all the worry. Just great.
We have another appointment on the 30th, so I am going to try and not make a big deal of it and find out where the fluid level is at our next appt. Hopefully it went down. If you're at all into praying, please pray for this!! And if you have experienced this of have any info, please let me know!

On another note, we did get some great pictures of Leyna!

A great profile shot

Look at those chubby cheeks!

I think she looks a lot like Hailey in this picture.


  1. The pictures look great! I was actually induced a month before Averi was due for LOW amniotic fluid, and they could never really tell me why it was low. I remember them saying it was better to have high than low fluid. Don't worry too much, I am sorry though!

  2. That little face is absolutely adorable. :) I don't know anything about amniotic fluid but I will absolutely keep you in my thoughts and prayers that everything will be absolutely perfect for Leyna.

  3. Praying for you and Leyna... She is BEAUTIFUL!!

  4. So beautiful! I'll keep you and Leyna in my thoughts ... remembering Hailey this week, too.
