Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

I do not like the way that this reads as it is hard to interpret. Also, I am not working with any knowledge of your pregnancy. Here is what I glean:

You are pregnant at 30 weeks with a baby that is head down, with a placenta towards the top of the uterus, and an amniotic fluid index that is elevated. The AFI is an ultrasound measure of the volume of fluid in the sac. The most common cause of an elevated AFI, or polyhydramnios, is gestational diabetes. This is more common in women with a history of PCOD. Ask your doctor about this and if it is a concern. It should be followed weekly.

I hope that this helps and good luck!
