Question: M 35 weeks 5 days pregnant. My AFI is less . It is 8cm . What are the chances of normal delivery.
Answer: Hi dear,
Amniotic fluid index(AFI),should be anywhere between 10- 18. Ideally 12 is good. But since your level is borderline,I would advice you to consult doctor.as high AFI could make the normal delivery difficult and you could deliver through c section .also low AFI could give you preterm delivery. low AFI has few reasons:
1- birth defects,which could give kidney problems or urinary tract issues in baby
2-placental problem.if the placenta is not providing enough nutrition to baby,then baby would stop recycling fluid
3-if mother has fluid early leakage
4- maternal complications like diabetes,high BP
1- baby could not develop lungs and muscles well.as from second trimester,baby starts to swallow the fluid and recycle it
2- increased chance of miscarriage or still birth
1- plenty of fluids to be taken.barley water is good in such conditions.
2- some cases IV fluids are administered
3- injecting fluids through amniocentesis
4- amnio infusion through catheter during labor
Question: what is the normal range of AFI in 34 weeks
Answer: Hello dear many congratulations for pregnancy
An AFI between 8-18 is considered normal. Median AFI level is approximately 14 from week 20 to week 35, when the amniotic fluid begins to reduce in preparation for birth. An AFI < 5-6 is considered as oligohydramnios. The exact number can vary by gestational age.
As the baby grows it produces more amniotic fluid. The amount increases until the baby is about 32 weeks gestation. The amniotic fluid levels then remains constant until the baby is full term (37 to 42 weeks) when the levels start to decline.
Healofy wishes you all the very best
