Thanks for the query.
You have to continue the infusion as advised by your doctor for few weeks.
As the liquor is the source of nutrition to the babies, by increasing the liquor volume the baby growth can increase.
So you follow the advice and go for repeat scan after 3 to 4 weeks.
Possibly by that time the fetus can pickup growth.
Meanwhile she can continue the other medicines as recommended.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
