Baby not getting enough oxygen!!!!

Hello all you guys know me here for the most part. I've got a friend who's due on my exact due date. So shes 21wk 3days. The doctors told her the baby isn't getting enough oxygen. Shes in the hospital right now. What do u guys think they can/will do for her?? I'm so scared for her.

I think that either you or she is confused about what the doctor said.  

There is no way to measure how much oxygen the baby is getting.  If the baby is very small for dates, having fetal heartrate decelerations, very low amniotic fluid...those can be signs of uteroplacental insufficiency, which might be what she is talking about.  

Sometimes the mother is given oxygen if the fetus is having decelerations or some other very ominous finding, but usually at 21 weeks, nothing can be done but to wait and see.  

All you can do is hope and pray for a good outcome for her.
