Thanks for writing to us.
The amniotic fluid at AFI 6 is too low. This is not likely to improve adequately even with ARG-9 sachets. If the baby's NST is normal then you can wait till 37 weeks and then decide for induction of labor or caesarean section.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
