Hi. I'm currently 24 weeks pregnant. I'm being monitored by u/s because of a blood clotting disorder. The u/s three weeks ago revealed borderline low amniotic fluid (8cm at 21 weeks). A follow-up today showed still low measurements at 10cm. Thankfully all the anatomical measurements for baby are normal- size, growth and most importantly good bladder and kidney function and size. Basically, my OB doesn't know why I have low amniotic fluid. I'm not overly concerned about it since the baby is growing properly, has good HB and is very active.
I was wondering if there are any tips of things I could do to increase amniotic fluid. I'm drinking one gallon of water per day, which is a lot, but don't mind doing more if that will help. I want to see the number increase for many reasons- one of which it to avoid future frequent u/s and anxiety.
Has anyone experienced similar diagnoses with no known cause? Poor bladder and kidney function in baby are often to blame for low amniotic fluid levels, but as I said, my baby is looking good!
Thanks for your time!
