Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, youe wife has oligohydroamnios means the liqur in which fetus lies is less then proper amount. but now she is 6month of pregnancy so there is more chance to formation of liqur , so do not worry start treatment as per advised. for it you should get high resolution (3D) sonography for confirming it. at 24th wk of pregnancy there is no need to worry as it is curable.if it persist later on pregnancy then it produse congenital abnormalities in fetus.

Hi Sumit,

Welcome to HCM.
Liquor (Amniotic fluid) is the fluid surrounding the baby in the womb. It is essential that there should be adequate liquor. If it is reduced the condition is called oligohydramnios. Oligohydramnios can be mild, moderate or severe. If it is moderate to severe then the risk to the baby is very high. If it is mild, then the doctor can manage by giving drip.
It is too early to deliver the child. If it was 28 or more weeks the baby could be delivered and treated.
Wish you all the best
