Polyhydramnios

Symptoms and Signs of Polyhydramnios

Signs of polyhydramnios include rapid growth of the fetus, discomfort in the abdomen and uterine contractions. As these potential symptoms of polyhydramnios may resemble other medical conditions, and because each women experiences polyhydramnios differently, you will need to see your doctor for a proper diagnosis. Your doctor will most likely use an ultrasound to measure the amount of fluid in the placenta; this ultrasound may also help determine the cause of the condition, which may be a birth defect or a multiple pregnancy.
