Need HighRisk OB: Many possible causes. Low movement is not worrying at 19 weeks, and the heartbeat is reassuring. I am worried about the low fluid. Was the sono done at your doctors? They may send you to a specialist. Also need to see if low fluid or no fluid. For no fluid, two most common causes are kidney problems in fetus or preterm rupture of membranes, both of which are not good. Low fluid needs following.
