  • It would be important to find out how much she thinks is "too much," and what she considers to be the danger zone.

  • As the girl above suggested, ask what is too much and what is reason for concern, and what does too much mean for baby? I was low, I had 1.8 cm of fluid and after 48 hours of being on fluid it only came up to around 3. And the doctor said it should be around 5 cm when I was at 36 weeks. So they induced me the next day. Always ask, they are the educated ones who can explain it to you. Because like any of us know what things mean. We don't learn about it until we are faced with it!!
