The normal range of the amniotic fluid index (AFI) is in between 8 to 18. You are slightly on the higher edge. This higher range may be due to diabetes, so controlling diabetes is very important. But an AFI higher than 24 to 25 is considered as polyhydramnios. Consult your doctor for a physical examination and later care can be planned whether with medications or amniocentesis.
