Question about U/S results

Hi, I'm new here, I found a link for this site on WebMD and decided to check it out.  I'm currently 36 weeks, 2 days pregnant with my second daughter and at my ultrasound today the tech told me that my amniotic fluid levels were pretty low, so when I left I called my doc's office and they told me that unless I start feeling the baby move less or leaking fluid that I should be fine until my appt on June 19th.  My question is this, depending on how low my levels are, is it possible that my doc will want to induce?  I'll be 37 weeks on Tuesday and I know she considers that safe to deliver.  Thanks in advance for any info.

Hi,

Nice to meet you!  Congratulations on your pregnancy and soon to be newborn baby!


I think it's possible hat she'll want to induce but you should ask her.  I remember when I was at the end of my pregnancy they wanted to see if the fluids were low so they'd know if they should induce.  They may want to keep checking the fluids to see if they gets lower.

They will continue to monitor you and you will probably have another ultrasound to check the levels again. If your fluid is too low and you haven't gone into labor then they will induce. Good Luck!

pretty sure that they will induce if you fluids levels are low and since you will be 37 weeks that is considered full term  good luck and let us know what happens
