That actually happened to me with my daughter. My fluid was normal then about 3 dsys later it was low. I was admitted into the hospital for possible dehydration put on IV  for 48hrs. After the time passed they checked me again fluid was even lower. I had an emergency c section at 34weeks. It seemed that my placenta was not working properly anymore. Out came baby girl.

My dr told me,if you can still feel baby moving, then they have enough amenotic fluid. If they didn't they wouldn't have room to move.
