Oligohydramnios is diagnosed when the amniotic fluid is less than 500 ml. or the amniotic fluid index in the deepest pocket is less than 5, especially during the third trimester. The drip that has been advised has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of oligohydramnios, but there are no long term studies so far to determine the long term impact on the mother and the baby. You may discuss with your doctor for further management. Take adequate fluids and rest. Good luck.
