  • They would have you increase your water intake, most likely. You can try that now, anyway.

  • The more natural approach would be to increase your water intake so that your fluid replenishes itself really well.

  • Hydrate.
    And be aware that fundal heigh measurements are generally very off in the third trimester. It's very likely that the baby simply moved position or even that there was a different person measuring.
