So last week I was at 4 cm. Now it's up to 5. They said it's low but every time I asked them if I should be concerned they just say there going to keep an eye on it. So what do you guys think? Should I be concerned?

I have 27 which is too much but I have heard that too much is better than too little. Is there any methods to increasing fluid? I know if it gets too low they will induce because it can be really bad for baby. Sorry I don't have great advice but good luck!

I've never had low fluid, only too much, so I'm not sure. Here's a bump though!

Up your water intake. 5-25 is normal according to my doc.

Yeah but it's definitely on the low end. And there worried since fluid decreases as the weeks progress, it will get to low. I already drink tons of water. But with my diabetes, placenta previa and SUA that could be a major factor as to why it's low

I had low fluid. Ended up finding out that it was due to ruptured membranes. Had my daughter 11 weeks early because of it.

Yes it is on the low side. SUA?

They did a swab test and it was negative

That is good. Hopefully you just need to increase the amount of water that you drink.
