hi
you did not mention the quantity of fluid. amniotic fluid index over 9 CMS is normal. if the water is less its important to know that you did not have leaking. you must receive steroids for fetal lung maturity. the medicines I use are argin sachets twice daily. lycopene tab twice daily , astymin forte thrice daily. to drink 2 fresh coconut water daily and about 2-2.5 litres of water daily if no renal problem or high BP. water should be measured weekly or twice weekly depending on the amount . there is possibility of delivery before 37 weeks if water goes below 5-7 cms range. some docs use intravenous fluids to improve it . . I have not found it to be very useful
