your ultrasound report is normal. AFI (Amniotic fluid Index) is at higher side. it does not mean any abnormality. there shouldnt be any problems for you or your baby. If Amnioic fluid is too much it can cause some problems like abruption, abnormal presentation of the baby, cord prolapse. in your case it is at higher side. as pregnancy advances, volume of the liquor decreases in the uterus. as you are towards the end of pregnancy, having slightly more liquor is not a problem.
