At 30 weeks pregnant, I was diagnosed with polyhydramnios (extra amniotic fluid). I was referred to Sanford Maternal Fetal Medicine in Sioux Falls to further assess the cause of the extra fluid. On their advanced ultrasound it was discovered that our baby had a medical condition called arthrogryposis (fixed joints). Amniocentesis was performed to rule out the causing factor of chromosomes or infection. Both tests came back normal. We did have the option of doing further genetic testing but the cost and amount of time for the test to return outweighed the benefit. At 36 weeks pregnant , the amniotic fluid reached normal levels. Selah Roslyn arrived by c section delivery on February 1.
