Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
It would have been better if you has let me known the complete Ultrasound Scan report. I would like to know the Amniotic Fluid Index and the amount of fluid which has been detected in your Bag of waters. Because, a fluid volume of less than 500ml between 32 to 36 weeks of gestation suggests oligohydramnios. The amniotic fluid is essential for the development of muscles, limbs, lungs, and the digestive system of your Baby. Since you are close to term delivery is usually what most doctors recommend in this kind of situations. Your Baby's activity will be monitored regularly thorough Nonstress Tests. The other treatment Options could include, Fluid infusion during labor through an intrauterine catheter or you will be rehydrated with oral fluids or IV fluids which are known to help increase the amniotic fluid levels.
Drink Plenty of water, Take your Medications regularly, Avoid stress and Go for regular follow up.

Wish you and your Baby Good Health, Take Care.

I went for a ultrasound May 6 2011 and got the results back from my doctor on may 16 2011. She told me everything looks fine and that I m 11, 9 weeks at the date of ultrasound, and gave me the report as I was leaving. I just read the report last friday because I thought their was no need to read it on monday if she said it was fine and it said: LMP March 30 or February 27. Their is a finding consistent with expected gestational sav withing the uterus containing yolk sac. No fetal pole or active fetal cardiac motion identified. Gestational sac measurement 6.22 mm equating less then 5 week gestation. Cervix closed, no abnormal fluid collection. No abnormal perlvic mass or fluid collection. Are my dates wrong and is their something I should be worried about?
