3mths pregnant. Scan shows less amniotic fluid. Diet to increase amniotic fluid?

Dear sir, I am 3months pregnant woman. After the last scanning, doctor told that the Amniotic fluid is a little less. Please tell me the food items, that will help in increasing the fluid quantity. Also tell me the better habits for increasing the fluid quantity. Please tell me that is bed rest needed in this stage to get the fluid increment. Furthermore, the doctor has prescribed to take Acetylsalicylic acid tablet ( Aspirin Protect 100 ). Is this medicine is safe to take during pregnancy. Please give your valuable adviseas.

Hello
thank you for your query.
Firstly, just at 3 months, it is too early for you to have oligohydramnios ( decreased amniotic fluid )
Please have a proper detailed ultrasound as oligo this early in pregnancy could be associated with some abnormalities in the baby.
Also, you need to take rest, not total bed rest, but upto 8 - 10 hours at night and 2 hours in the day.
Sleep in the left lateral position.
Aspirin is safe if your doctor has prescribed it. It increased blood flow to the baby.
Also, take lots of fluids, atleast 4 - 5 litres per day.
have a high protein diet.
Lots of chicken, eggs, milk, nuts, legumes.
try taking protein powder supplements and Arginine sachets with water and Alamine capsules.
take care.
