Thanks for query.
You can not increase amniotic fluid,
Take plenty of water.
Remain in contact with your obst. and repeated ultrasound will give you amniotic fluid measurement.
It should not go below 5-6.
see for fetal distress signs.
ok and bye.

Hi Usha, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

Your history suggests you have Oligohydramnios, it is a cause of concern, as Amniotic fluid provides a cushion that protects your baby from injury and allows room for growth, movement and development.

Since you are perceiving fetal movements, there should be nothing to be concerned about, but you should be drinking Plenty of water. Get adequate rest and avoid stress. Go for regular follow up, your doctor may do follow up Ultrasound scans to know the amount of amniotic fluid. Speak to your Doctor as she will carefully monitor your pregnancy to help prevent any complications.

If it doesn't help, Your doctor may infuse saline into the amniotic sac and if the baby's heart rate is falling the baby will be delivered through cesarean section. Your treating doctor will know better.

Wish you Good Health.

Take Care.
