Low AFI

Hello Doctor,
I am 35 week 1 day pregnant. Last week my doctor said to me that i have a very low AFI of 6.2, for that she gave me L-Arginine & Proanthocyanidin granules and MA-DHA to have daily once. I have continued with the above medicine and on my 35 week visit my AFI was found to be 6.5. She told me that i will be having a 90 % chance of C-Section delivery. My delivery date is on Jan 25 2011. Please suggest me what should i do to increase the fluid level. My doctor told me to come after 3 weeks. Please guide me.

Thanks & Regards,
Jyothirmai K

Are you ruptured?  Have you been leaking any fluid?  Have they Nitrazined any fluid or done a ferning test?
