Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
It would have been better if you has let me known the complete Ultrasound Scan report. I would like to know the Amniotic Fluid Index and the amount of fluid which has been detected in your Bag of waters. Because, a fluid volume of less than 500ml between 32 to 36 weeks of gestation suggests oligohydramnios. The amniotic fluid is essential for the development of muscles, limbs, lungs, and the digestive system of your Baby. Since you are close to term delivery is usually what most doctors recommend in this kind of situations. Your Baby's activity will be monitored regularly thorough Nonstress Tests. The other treatment Options could include, Fluid infusion during labor through an intrauterine catheter or you will be rehydrated with oral fluids or IV fluids which are known to help increase the amniotic fluid levels.
Drink Plenty of water, Take your Medications regularly, Avoid stress and Go for regular follow up.

Wish you and your Baby Good Health, Take Care.
