<p>My S is "due" in a few days and she had a check up today where they did several non-stress tests & said her amniotic fluid is low, but not low enough to induce.  She is going back in two days for another  test and if her fluid is below a certain point they will check her in. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, the OB said that when she is in labor that they are going to insert a tube to put fluid in.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It seems that the ultrasound led to the "low fluid" which led to the non-stress test, etc.   From what I have read, the US can vary greatly re: fluid levels and many times women are induced when it isn't necessary.  What do you all think?</p>

<p>Fluid levels often begin to lower as delivery gets closer. Unless there are some other signs of distress in mother or baby, I would wait and do nothing about it. I would do the extra ultrasounds if it kept my doctor happy, but would NOT induce. I am not familiar with this "straw procedure."</p>
