I just got a call from my PREVIOUS doctor (I left her for a new doctor a little over a month ago) because my ultrasound results were sent to her office by mistake. I was told the other day at the ultrasound that my amniotic fluid was low & to talk to my doctor about it. So today at my doctor appointment I brought it up & they had the ultrasound results faxed over. She said they are pretty low, but that I should be fine & to just start trying to get things started on my own for the next week (walk, sex, she even suggested castor oil if I felt comfortable with that) & we'd see how I am on the 16th. Well my previous doctor called because she was very concerned with the ultrasound results & wanted to know what my doctor planned on doing about it because she thinks I should be at L&D within the next 24hrs being induced. This concerned me...maybe the low fluid is more dangerous than my current doctor wanted to tell me?? Any advice??

I have to agree, go to the hospital and see what they think. I'm not sure if they will induce you without your Dr.s consent so if that doesn't work, call your OLD OB and see what she would recommend you do. And I agree with that also, it sounds like your old Dr. is more concerned than your new Dr. Castor oil can give your baby (while STILL IN THE WOMB) diarrhea! It is a very dangerous thing to do!

OH wow. Yeah, that is pretty messed up. You have to do what you feel like YOU should do. Take charge of YOUR healthcare. If this were happening to me, I would go to the hospital and tell my Dr. that I want to have the baby NOW because of............ And I would give her my reasons and be done. If she wouldn't help me, well, at least you are IN the hospital and might be able to get a second opinion. Explain what happened with your last Dr. and what your last Dr. said exactly. If not you will just be worried about it nonstop.
