A friend's niece was so excited this morning coz they were suppose to find out the gender of their baby. They were told that the baby is healthy but she does not have enough fluid in her placenta and that the baby will not make it. They were also not able to determine the sex.
They were ask to make a decision as soon as possible to terminate this pregnancy, she is 20 weeks. If she decide to keep it, the baby will be still-born.
She was told that the baby will not make it wither way.
We told her to consult with another doctor. The doctor she saw today was suppose to be a specialist.
Any recommendation you give I will forward to her.
This is their first baby.

with my first pregnancy I had low amniotic fluid because of problems with the placenta. My doctors didn't help me much except to stress me out, accuse me of drinking and taking drugs (I was young and unmarried so it must be that not something medical right) and telling me I'd be lucky if my baby survived. I had non-stress tests done almost daily and ultrasounds almost as frequently. My girl was measuring much smaller then what she should have been. At about 35 weeks I was given steroids to mature her lungs. She was delivered a month early so she could grow outside the womb. She is 13 now and shows no affects of the earlier medical problems. . . Moral of the story, get a second or third opinion Just as a resource. . . http://www.americanpregnancy.org/pregnancycomplications/lowamnioticfluidoligohydramnios.htm
