my friends daughter is 24 weeks pregnant and they are sending her to a specialist due to her amniotic fluid being low.they noticed in an ultrasound and told her to drink plenty of fluids.she did that and they did another ultrasound this week and it's still the same.anyone have this issue or know anything about it?
I had low fluid at 31 weeks with my second son. When it got to 7, I was put on hospital bedrest. They did ultrasounds daily to make sure he was ok and to test his fluid level. Frustratingly, they don't count fluid that is in the baby's bladder. My son's level got down to 2 at one point, but he was doing fine so they let me continue. Drinking water like a camel didn't help and I never showed signs of any rupture, etc. one dr mentioned a possible kidney issue being the cause of the low fluid, but he was born totally fine (contractions started on their own).... Just try not to freak out about it, sometimes I apparently just happens. A specialist I saw before this pregnancy told me that it's fine to let pregnancies continue if h level is 3 or so as long as h baby looks good
