Lowered amniotic fluid can result in complications of pregnancy depending on the stage of pregnancy, severity of the problem and the time of intervention. The mainstay of the treatment is rest in the lateral position to ensure better placental perfusion. In addition, restriction of activity is needed. Fluid intake may be increased in the hope that liquor may improve. In case of severe oligohydramnios when the maturity is not yet attained and the fetus is jeopardized, amnioinfusion can be tried. Have a regular thorough follow up with your doctor as you still have about 15 weeks to go to attain maturity, at 37 weeks. Wish you a safe delivery.
