Even for me amniotic fluid is 22cm however the glucose test was normal so doctor said no need to worry just take rest and slow down on activities.

Placenta posterior is not a cause for concern. Amniotic fluid is on the higher side. Is the glucose test in the normal range ? If yes then just limit activities like squatting and sitting on the floor etc. The excess weight of the fluid can cause the amniotic sac to rupture and that can lead to preterm birth. This happens rarely but we advise to avoid these postures or any postures which put pressure on the pelvis as a caution.

@sonali Shivlani, at my 26 weeks of pregnancy Glucose level in fasting was 98 and after Glucose it was 164 before that it was normal,so doctor suggested for glycomet 250 two times in a day, while I was travelling to my native doctor gave me steroid (Dexamethasone - 4 doses) and insulin also, now doctor has suggested to stop glycomet and continue insulin(4 units) three times in a day with proper diet and I got thyroid also during my pregnancy for which I am taking 25 mg thyronorm. I am really scared for my baby's growth and body functionality.
