Concerned Low Amniotic Flui Is This Dangerous

4 Replies
Skyla - October 20

I just went for my 20wk ultrasound and it came back saying that my amniotic fluid had decreased a bit. The doctor is booking me another ultra sound at the hospital to recheck it. I'm worried now, but really I am not even sure what that could mean. The doc office said that it's nothing to worry about some women have to much or to little fluid. Does anyone have advise? Has this happened to anyone (I was told it is quite common)? Is there anything I can do to bring that level up? Help

With all 3 of my pregnancies I had low water towards the end. Your doc is right, it is common and no need to worry too much about it. When they do the ultrasound at the hospital it is more in depth and will make you feel much better.

I did experience low fluid throughout my last pregnancy. The perinatologist stated that the baby does move around which sometimes appears to have less fluid. It does change daily, up and down, they will probably check it more towards the end of your pregnancy when their is not much room for baby to move around, then they will decide whether the levels are too low then chose whether to start delivering a little early. Again, this is very common, and becomes much more of an issue at the tail end of your pregnancy. Good luck!

rest and rehydration are very important, also pelvic rest would be a good idea.

My mother had low amniotic fluid when she was pregnant with me. A few weeks before I was due, they had to induce labor. I'm just fine with no health problems (besides some genetic things that run in our family) so don't worry, your baby will probably be fine!
