Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Amniotic fluid actually has a very important role for the fetus, including protecting the fetus from mechanical injury, maintaining the temperature in the uterus, preventing infection, providing nutrition for the fetus, supporting the development of the lungs, digestive system, muscles, and bones. However, an excessive volume of amniotic fluid can be bad for the development of the fetus in the womb. This condition is called polyhydramnios.
Polyhydramnios can be triggered by congenital abnormalities in the fetus (for example in the digestive system or central nervous system), uncontrolled maternal diabetes, multiple pregnancy, fetal anemia, blood group incompatibility, or infection. If not handled properly, polyhydramnios can put the baby at greater risk of being born prematurely, premature rupture of the membranes, abruption of the placenta (the placenta is detached from its attachment), the umbilical cord drops so that it is prone to pinching, until the fetus dies in the womb. Mothers who are pregnant with polyhydramnios are also more at risk of giving birth by caesarean section and experiencing excessive bleeding after delivery due to inadequate uterine muscle tone.
Need to clarify again, is it true that your fetal heart rate is "fast"? If so, then this condition is not always dangerous. However, if you mean that your fetus is beating "fast", then you should confirm your condition by checking with a gynecologist. In some cases, a fast fetal rate can indicate fetal distress that needs to be treated IMMEDIATELY. This fetal distress can be related to amniotic fluid abnormalities that you are suffering from, or it can also arise due to other factors, for example amniotic cord compression, meconium aspiration, mothers who are too old, are pregnant with twins, or a history of maternal illness, such as anemia, diabetes, hypertension, etc.
What you need to do at this time is:
Get used to think positive, calm yourself
Eat enough to keep the body in shape
Wear comfortable clothes, not too tight
If you have a history of diabetes, periodically control your blood sugar to the doctor
Have your pregnancy checked regularly to a gynecologist, which is once a month until your pregnancy reaches 8 months, once every 2 weeks at 8-9 months of gestation, and once a week at 36 weeks of gestation until your delivery time
Avoid smoking, alcohol, and consumption of drugs carelessly
Hope it helps ..
