  • Low fluid means you need to drink more water and are dehydrated. Get a big glass of water and make sure to refill it often!

  • There are few treatments for low amniotic fluid. Drinking more water may help. In some cases, bed rest is recommended. During labor, it may be possible to infuse saline into the sac holding your amniotic fluid to cushion the umbilical cord.

  • Drinking more water isn't going to cure it. Not if it's that low. With my first son, I was at 35 weeks, low fluid. As in you should have 5 cm of fluid in there and I had 1.7. I was put on an IV of fluid for 48 hours. But it didn't get over 2.5. So they induced. I was most likely "seeping" fluid.
    Second pregnancy, basically same scenario. Induced again. Both during the 35 week point. They were both developed wonderfully. To which we are very grateful for!!!!
