How To Deal With Cloudy Amniotic Fluid At 19 Weeks Pregnant?
Afternoon. I am 19 weeks pregnant. I want to ask about the water that is a bit cloudy, what do you think is the cause? And how to solve it? considering my gestational age is still relatively young, I am afraid of harming my fetus. Thank you.
Hi Mae, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Amniotic fluid is a fluid that functions as a cushion that protects the baby or fetus from trauma caused by many external factors, protects the fetus from internal infections, plays a role in fetal development in the womb, especially in temperature stability and free movement in the womb. Normally the amniotic fluid is clear or clear, but if the amniotic fluid is cloudy, the possible causes are:
Infection, for example due to ruptured amniotic fluid that is not treated immediately segera
Pregnancy that exceeds time, for example 42 weeks of gestation
Fetal disorders in the womb
Amniotic fluid mixes with meconium, and meconium is a stool that is passed by the baby
If in your pregnancy, you feel the seepage of water coming out without the smell of urine, immediately consult your gynecologist, so that the doctor can examine you whether the amniotic fluid is coming out or not.
What you can do at home is
Drink a lot of water
Eat highly nutritious food
get enough rest'
Avoid excessive stress or anxiety
Keep your intimate organs clean, so as not to infect your uterus which will cause the membranes to rupture
