amniotic fluid

Has anyone had low levels of amniotic fluid early on in pregnancy, and gone on to have a successful delivery? I am only 22 weeks and babies amnniotic fluid is measuring at 7.  I am waiting to hear from a specialist, but thought I would see if anyone out there had similar experience?

Hi, with both of my pregnancies i have had low amniotic fluid. Have you had an US to see how your baby is doing? THe first time i had low fluid it was b/c the baby didnt develop kidneys and a bladder, he wouldnt have lived outside the womb, so i had to do a d&c...The second time, it was because i had a leak in the sac. Are you leaking clear fluid? Sometimes, the doctors will inject saline into the amniotic sac to help you along your pregnancy, but with mine it was totally different...keep us posted and good luck

I had a scre last night acxtually. I wen to go to the bathroom and my panties were soaked. I called my Doc and he told me to go to thr ER. I went and they checked for heart beat and ultra sound. The baby is fine and they just thought it was a change in my CM and maybe a little bit od pee!

Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. This can help in production of fluids.

Good luck.

Hi there...I too am 22weeks pregnant.  Due date of Dec. 14th.  During my u/s they discovered that I have low amniotic fluid.  I am measuring 3 cm in the deepest pocket and 2 cm average.  I know that 5cm - 25cm is considered NORMAL.  The word oligohydramnios refers to low amniotic fluid.  There are lots of great websites if you YAHOO that word.  I am going to be monitored .  But they are not going to do another u/s until 25 weeks.  I am worried, but I also am reassured because they are monitoring me.  My baby is growing well and has a very strong heartbeat, so the doctor is not terribly concerned at this point.  He does indicate an earlier than scheduled delivery date.  Best of luck to you!
