I also had low fluid which was noticed only at 28 wks. Had weekly ultrasound to check fluid levels and had a c-section at 32 weeks. At that point my fluid level was down to 2cm.

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
