Answer: What are the risks of having low amniotic fluid? The risks associated with oligohydramnios often depend on the gestation of the pregnancy. The amniotic fluid is essential for the development of muscles, limbs, lungs, and the digestive system. In the second trimester, the baby begins to breathe and swallow the fluid to help their lungs grow and mature. The amniotic fluid also helps the baby develop muscles and limbs by providing plenty of room to move around. If oligohydramnios is detected in the first half of pregnancy, the complications can be more serious and include: Compression of fetal organs resulting in birth defects Increased chance of miscarriage or stillbirth If oligohydramnios is detected in the second half of pregnancy, complications can include: Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR) Preterm birth Labor complications such as cord compression, meconium stained fluid and cesarean delivery What treatments are available if I am experiencing low amniotic fluid? The treatment for low levels of amniotic fluid is based on gestational age. If you are not full term yet, your doctor will monitor you and your levels very closely. Tests such as non-stress and contraction stress test may be done to monitor your baby’s activity. If you are close to full term, then delivery is usually what most doctors recommend in situations of low amniotic fluid levels. Other treatments that may be used include: Amnio-infusion during labor through an intrauterine catheter.  This added fluid helps with padding around the umbilical cord during delivery and is reported to help lower the chances of a cesarean delivery. Injection of fluid prior to delivery through amniocentesis.  The condition of oligohydramnios is reported to often return within one week of this procedure, but it can aid in helping doctors visualize fetal anatomy and make a diagnosis. Maternal re-hydration with oral fluids or IV fluids has shown to help increase amniotic fluid levels.
Answer: Hello! Ambio fluid if reduced can result in preterm delivery as the baby might have the risk off getting infection. It is important that's you drink more. Also have coconut water on daily basis along with fruits with high water content.

Answer: Hello! Since you have low amniotic fluid chances are there that the overall growth and lungs development will be effected. That is why doctor do not want to take chances and have given you medicine for the growth of the baby. Don't worry, your doctor will prescribe medicine which is necessary for you only.

Answer: Hello Vaginal discharge during pregnancy is very normal it's while milky and mild smelling. It's nothing to worry about. If vaginal discharge is yellow greenish fowl smelling and accompied by redness boils or itching that means u have got a fungal or yeast infection. Meet ur doctor. Never try to treat yourself during pregnancy. In ur second trimester u can see pink or brown discharge this should be bought to ur doctors notice as it could be nothing or bleeding may indicate something.
