29 weeks pregnant, high amniotic fluid level, no diabetes, stomach pain, trouble breathing,

Hi, i am a 28 year old mother of 2. I am pregnant with my third child and i am 29 weeks pregnant. Recently i was told that my amniotic fluid levels are high. But i don t have diabetes . Last night i was having horrible pain in my stomach , in the area of my belly stomach was hard as a rock and it was very painful . Eventually the pain lessened after about two and a half hours later. Today i am having a very hard time breathing and i get dizzy and light headed if i stand for too long. Is it time to call the doctor?is this a side effect of the polyhydramnia?

when the liquor is measured in AFI - 15 to 20, it is called excess liquor is common around the 28 to 30 weeks,
when AFI is 20 to 25 or above it is called polyhydromnios,
according to your symptoms it is appearing as polyhydromnios.
excess liquor is inducing uterine contractions to you that is why you are feeling abdomen hard on palpation.
as excessive liquor pushing your diaphragm up, you are facing breathlessness.
you have to visit doctor as early as possible to find out the cause and to take the treatment.
take care.
