Baby Is Urinating Already
By now your baby is urinating approximately several cups of urine a day into the amniotic fluid. He is also swallowing amniotic fluid, which is completely replaced several times a day. Excess fluid in the amniotic sac may mean that the baby isn’t swallowing normally or that there is a gastrointestinal obstruction. On the other hand, inadequate fluid in the amniotic sac may mean that the baby isn’t urinating properly and could indicate a problem with the kidneys or urinary tract. Your doctor will measure your levels of amniotic fluid as part of your routine ultrasound.
