AFI 17. 5 indicates polyhydroamnios.
Diabetes is one of the common cause of increasing liquor.
Do GTT Glucose Tolerance Test means
Fasting sugar test
Have 75 gm glucose and do sugar test after 1 hr and 2 hrs.
Consult obstetrician and keep watch on baby movements.
There should be at least 10-12 movements in a day.

Liquor quantity between 10-15 is normal Yours is slightly on the higher side Most common cause for higher volume of liquor is diabetes so get your fasting and post prandial sugars checked Go for regular walks but avoid exertion Liquor volume slowly reduces towards the end of pregnancy that is after 36-37 wks So nothing major to worry
