Oligohydramnios Ultrasound For Pregnancy
I have completed 32 week of pregnancy in my latest ultrasound report it showed mild oligohydramnios, what precautions should I take.
Please advise any treatment?
Oligohydramnios: just means there is less amniotic fluid in your gestational sac than normal. Continue to drink liquids plenty and hope for the best. Oligohydramnios only elevates the perinatal fetal risks such as nuchal cord and fetal hypoxia. Please keep close watch with your OB doctor and good luck. ...Read more
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more
Ultrasound result: single live intrautrerine pregnancy,presently cephalic,20weeks and 5days gestation,oligohydramnios fetal ascites..what can i do
See perinatologist: Its frightening to have an ultrasound that gives news that isn't perfect. Oligohydramnios means that there isn't enough fluid around the baby. You can help make more fluid by drinking lots and lots of water and getting enough rest. You need to see a perinatologist to find out why. This is a doctor who concentrates on complicated pregnancies to find out why. Best Wishes! ...Read more
Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?
With great precision: An early ultrasound is the most precise (+/- 3-5 days until 8 weeks) in the determination of the due date and therefore the fetal age. This declines to +/-5-7 days @8-12 weeks +/-7-10 days @13-23 weeks +/-10-14 days @24-28 weeks +/-14-17 days @29-32 weeks and +/- 17-21 days thereafter. Due to the biological variation of the ovulation date ultrasound <24 weeks is more reliable than last period! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Does having a tipped uterus affect ultrasound for pregnancy? At 4 weeks conception would the dr. See anything?
Not really, heart: "tipping" of uterus is how uterus points inside body and doesnt affect pregnancy. It may affect ability of ultrasound to see early in the pregnancy but minimally so. For example, if your uterus is retroverted (pointed to the back) it may make it a little harder for ultrasound to see as uterus is farther from the probe (particularly if theres bowel in the way as well). Can see sac, heart beat. ...Read more
Placenta: Most commonly the placenta is the source of oligohydramnios (though congenital abnormalities can occur too). Most common reason for oligo are related to blood pressure. Did you have a problem with elevated blood pressure in the pregnancy? Or with diabetes? Exercise is a great way to prevent both of those problems. 60 min of cardiovascular exercise a day, 5-6 days a week is best! ...Read more
Is 7.5cm amniotic fluid level a sign of concern( 38 week 1 day). What is done in case of low amniotic fluid at this stage of pregnancy?
Possibly but u need: To discuss this at length with your OB because u will need increased frequency of ultrasound because if the fluid becomes too low or the baby is not growing properly you will need early delivery by csection but this will be determined by your OB and I am sure your OB will be having u seeing a perinatologist also. ...Read more
