Thanks for your query.
Sometime in second trimester it is normal to see liquor is low it may improve with time so follow up ultrasound advice to know the progress.
You should consult a gynecologist to follow up this problem with ultrasound because your baby is fine in ultrasonography you may not to worry, your baby may survive. You should take plenty of fluids orally and rule out the other causes of decrease liquor.
Don't worry.
Take care.

Thank you for your query.
Decreased amniotic fluid around the baby is called oligohydramnios.
This condition , if not treated, is very harmful for the baby.
It can lead to growth restriction and even intra uterine death.
Common causes of oligohydramnios are - abnormalities in the baby leading to decreased urine production and decreased fluid around the baby, abnormalities of the placenta, maternal diseases like hypertension and dehydration and malnutrition, etc.
YOu need to have detailed ultrasound to know whether there are any other associated anomalies in the baby.
Improve your rest, fluid intake, and increase intake of amino acids and protein in diet.
Go alongwith the advice given by your obstetrician.
Take care.
