Why do my amniotic fluid during pregnancy goes low and than back to normal within few days. Am 32 weeks, but since 16 weeks fluid sometimes low.

Need more info: There is not a very high correlation between the level of amniotic fluid and fetal well-being. If the baby is growing well, moving well, and you were doing well with normal weight gain etc. Then the likelihood of there being a problem is low. You should however discuss the whole range of possibilities with your obstetrician.

How does amniotic fluid dry up in the womb during pregnancy?

How does amniotic fluid dry up in the womb during pregnancy?

Decreases amniotic: Decreased amniotic fluid level most commonly occurs due to rupture of membranes. Other causes can be due placental insufficiency or fetal renal anomalies. Your baby will continue to normally produce amniotic fluid by voiding. So the amniotic fluid does not dry up. Either less fluid is produced or more fluid is leaving than is produced.

Relax: Your results are within normal range - relax. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids daily (water is best), take folic acid ~1 mg orally daily and accept my best wishes for a healthy pregnancy outcome!

I was told that my amniotic fluids where low and I'm a full term pregnancy should I be worried? I am also not dilating what should I do.

I was told that my amniotic fluids where low and I'm a full term pregnancy should I be worried? I am also not dilating what should I do.

Maybe: It depends on the number. If your fluid is low enough, your OB will probably consider an induction. If it's borderline and the rest of the testing is ok, you can go a little while longer. While it's preferable for you to start dilating on your own, there are several reliable ripening agents that can help. Talk to your OB and voice your concerns. Keep monitoring your baby's movements.

38 weeks pregnant with second child. I was induced with the first because of no amniotic fluid what does this mean for this pregnancy.?

38 weeks pregnant with second child. I was induced with the first because of no amniotic fluid what does this mean for this pregnancy.?

Nothing: If you are already 38 weeks pregnant, a shortage of amnionic fluid would have been noticed by now on ultrasound. Depending on the cause the first time around, it probably is not repetitive and no need to worry.

I'm 33 weeks pregnant and was told today my amniotic fluid is low. 43, 0, 23 and 31mm. What will this mean for my baby and remaining pregnancy?

I'm 33 weeks pregnant and was told today my amniotic fluid is low. 43, 0, 23 and 31mm. What will this mean for my baby and remaining pregnancy?

Close watching: If amniotic fluid is low, pregnant women are very closely watched. This may mean repeat ultrasounds and heart beat testing. It's possible that early delivery may be recommended. But in most cases, at 33 weeks, the baby and mom will both be fine as long as doctor advice is followed.

Infected in CMV prior to pregnancy. I realized there was no risk to the fetus. I want to perform amniocentesis. Is amniotic fluid used to do 16 20 wee?

Infected in CMV prior to pregnancy. I realized there was no risk to the fetus. I want to perform amniocentesis. Is amniotic fluid used to do 16 20 wee?

Possible...: My advice would be to pose this question to your ob/gyn. As you will not be the one performing the actual procedure; best to ask the professionals. There is always a small risk of miscarriage after an amniocentesis; albeit minute...So best to discuss this with your obstetrician.
