im 26 weeks pregnant and i am not on bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy because when i went to the dr at 20 weeks they found that my amniotic fluid is almost non existant. i have approx 2 of 20 cm of fluid. they told me that i just need to rest. has anyone else experienced this and if so did you find anything that helped? thanks

My cousin had this happen to her. She was on bed rest for both the low fluid and she also had high blood pressure. Her baby is over a year old now- perfectly fine (but he was a month early?). Don't think that is why though.

#1 Try not to freak out too much. #2 Go for a second opinion and tell them what you can do to keep the baby.Maybe bedrest will help and since its almost weekend try some other websites too.Good luck and keep us up to date ok?

Hi Jenn, I was at about 28 weeks pregnant when my amniotic fluid was low and I was told to drink lots of water to increase it. Though I was working a full time job that required a lot of traveling, home visits in hot weather. I drank more water than before, but at 32 weeks my amniotic fluid was very, very low after I went for a sonogram again. The doctor sent me to the hospital right away. I asked why it was so low, but was told it could be for various reasons such as the baby has a kidney problem, syndrome, birth defect or the placenta was not working properly, or for an unkown cause. I had a c-section at 32 weeks and had a premature baby. Though she is now 19 months old and doing well. Till this day, I do not know what caused my amniotic fluid to be low and wish I knew. What I wished I did more of is Rest more, drink more water from the start, and ask a lot of questions when you see your doctor. Search on the internet on causes of low amniotic fluid and what can be done during your pregnancy. I hope all will go well and follow your instincts. Good Luck!!
