Thanks for posting your query.
Increased amniotic fluid levels of this level do not adversely affect the baby in any way.
Your doctor will probably do regular scans to keep an eye on the fluid levels. There are some conditions in mother and baby which may sometimes cause increased fluid, and your doctor should check these causes.
Many times, no causes are found and the fluid levels can either remain elevated, or decrease and come to normal levels.
Hope that answers your question.
Best wishes.
